[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.
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.
Patricio Guzman's 2004 biography of the Chilean president is less a conventional documentary than a cinematic act of mourning.
It's a solid no-nonsense documentary.
Guzmán's 2004 documentary is not only full of historical detail, but is also suffused with lyricism and melancholy, beautifully shot and edited.
Less effective as a portrait of Allende than it is as a commentary on the documentary medium itself-art as a means of resuscitating history.
A heartfelt documentary about the charismatic and idealist leader of Chile who sought to bring a fair and free world to his people.
Excellent portrait of a tragic figure, who tried to defend the interests of working people while stopping short of abolishing the system that is responsible for their suffering.
What the world knows of Chile in the 1970s, it knows through the films of Patricio Guzman.
Chilean Guzman captures the populist appeal of Allende's campaign and the fervor many of the people felt for the candidate.
