The Ultimate Story of Personal Transformation

As the LA Times trips over itself to toss laurels on Benicio Del Toro for his performance as the psychopathic murderer Che Guevara in the feature film biopic so poignantly titled, "Che," (a film reviewed after it's 4 hour 18 minute premier at Cannes by Daily Variety as a "commercial impossibility") one small piece of humor arises in toward the end of the story.

The piece describes Del Toro's next role as "perhaps the ultimate story of personal transformation. What could they be talking about? Shakespeare, Ibsen, Williams, O'Neill???

No, nothing so esoteric.

It's "The Wolf Man."
