  • [Director] Guzman's film is filled with revelations that will disturb many, including U.S. involvement in the coup. If only Guzman had been more innovative in his presentation.

  • One from the heart, Salvador Allende is a plaintive look back at the rise and violent fall of the world's first democratically elected Marxist president.

    Sep 5, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • The controversial Chilean president is ultimately painted sympathetically, and quite convincingly so, in this artful 2004 doc from Patricio Guzmán.

  • Mixing extensive archival footage and contemporary interviews with survivors of the era, the film gets across, quite powerfully, Allende's long courtship of the Chilean people.

    Sep 15, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Patricio Guzman's 2004 biography of the Chilean president is less a conventional documentary than a cinematic act of mourning.

Audience Reviews for Salvador Allende

  • May 05, 2007
    Decent documentary on the life of socialist Salvador Allende, who was elected president of Chile in 1970 and died during a coup financed by the USA in 1973. After his death a 17 year long Junta by General Pinochet followed with severe consequences for the population.
