Box art for Gabo: The Creation of Gabriel García Márquez

This is an impressively thorough and comprehensive account. It doesn't attempt to match the poetry of its subject's own storytelling but its narrative, like his, is open to interpretation in many different ways, and richer for it.

A law-school dropout and political journalist who grew up in the poverty and violence of northern Colombia, Gabriel Garcia Marquez became the writer of globally celebrated, critically-acclaimed books including Love in the Time of Cholera and One Hundred Years of Solitude. Known as "Gabo" to all of Latin America, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's sensual, "magical" sensibility leds him to the forefront of the political struggles of the 1970s and 1980s -- including a pivotal and previously unknown role in negotiations between Cuban leader Fidel Castro and American President Bill Clinton -- and into the hearts of readers across the world. -- Icarus Films
