South of the Border is an uneven, one-sided, political travelogue by Oscar-winning film-maker, Oliver Stone.

It's a documentary that follows him as he interviews a half dozen South American presidents, including the outspoken president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez.

In fact, Stone spends more time with Chavez than all the other presidents combined, and does one thing well: he brings up the fact that the political landscape in South America is rapidly changing and not in America's favor. But mostly, South of the Border is too short and too shallow to be taken seriously. It's an interesting film, just not a very good film.
