Senate majority leader practices politics of personal destruction

The hottest ticket in Havana is a gory, campy zombie flick with a wicked sense of humor about Cuba's obsessive relations with the United States, one that revels in islanders' knack for making the best of things even when everything around you _ buildings, streets, human limbs _ is falling to pieces.
Yasumari Alvarez, a Cuban film institute employee who was not involved in the production, said she was drawn by the novelty of a homegrown production, albeit with Spanish financing, that uses computer-generated effects to transform the Cuban capital.
"It's the first Cuban film with special effects. All Havana is destroyed, with zombies in the streets," said Alvarez.
