At a time when most of Hollywood still sees Fidel Castro as a hero, it is interesting that a new movie portrays him as anything but. The Lost City, starring Andy Garcia, Ines Sastre, and Bill Murray (Dustin Hoffman also has a terrific walk on) is a chilling story of the communist rise to power in Cuba. The love story is bit sappy, but the movie is worth it just for the scene in which the communists ban saxophones as “an imperialist instrument.” And the soundtrack is a treat.
