Give Benicio Del Toro some credit: He's been on the Che World Tour since last May's Cannes premiere, and there are only so many ways to deflect inquiries about his character's mass-murder pastime.
It was only a matter of time before the Oscar-winner exhausted the potency of his trademark "Don't shoot that back at me, bro" riposte, thus requiring a more forceful comeback for offending journalists grilling him on this or that merit of Che Guevara. He saved his grand finale for a lucky-ish Washington Times reporter who last week grilled Del Toro about Cuba's pesky, post-revolutionary "concentration camp" problem:
"I'm getting uncomfortable," Benicio Del Toro said after fielding a question about his new movie's portrayal of the Bolivian and Cuban revolutions. "I'm done. I'm done, I hope you write whatever you want. I don't give a damn."
With that, the Oscar-winning actor walked away, abruptly terminating an interview [...] "We can't cover it all," Mr. Del Toro said. "You can make your own movie. You know? You can make your own movie. And let's see. Do the research."
So concludes the actor's current press run, as far as we know — suspended until at least November, when the inevitable, essential "'Who would win in a battle to the death: The Wolf Man or Che?" question arises in the first round of interviews for his fall tentpole.
