'Che' running time 4 hours 17 minutes

Steven Soderbergh's 257 minute opus 'Che' a biopic of Revolutionary Che Guerrera was recently screened at the New York Film Festival with a 30 minute intermission. I'm a fan of Soderbergh's (Ocean's Eleven, Traffic) and of Benicio Del Toro he stars in the film as Che. But, 4 hours seems  a little Lawerence of Arabia 2 naps in 1 movie to me. Regardless, I'm excited for this. The producers are hoping for a December release to get the film and Del Toro in Oscar contention.
