"In the name of the father" and Che Guevera

In one prison cell scene in "In the Name of The Father" (see my earlier post on this movie), you can see a poster of Che Guevera on the wall with his war-cry slogan "Hasta la victoria siempre" which roughly translated means 'Never stop until you're finished' or 'Fight till victory'. It gels so well with the spirit of the heroes (son and father both) of the movie that its being on the prison wall strikes you real emotionally.

Even as this particular time-honored image of Che always reminds one of the rebel spirit of mankind, I find this image highly enigmatic, inspiring in a very cool sort of way.
