638 Ways to Kill Castro
(dir. Dollan Cannell, Cuba/UK, 2006, 76 Min.)

This shockingly objective documentary tells how the CIA and Cuban exiles have made 638 attempts on the life of Fidel Castro. Amazing archival footage and interviews with would-be assassins reveal the incredible cloak-and-dagger plots, from employing the mafia heavies, to noxious gas and exploding cigars, and the bizarre lengths the United States has gone to trying to end Communism in Cuba. We see how John F. Kennedy asked Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, for advice on ending the Castro regime. But perhaps most controversial are the clips of Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen welcoming just about anyone interested in assassinating Castro. This documentary, by Britain's Dollan Cannell was initially screened in Cuba, only to be later banned for showing the revolutionary government in a bad light. Find out exactly what the CIA has been up to on behalf of the American people.
