Carlos

Frenchman Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep, Demonlover) directs this international epic (originally broadcast as a TV miniseries in Europe) about Venezuelan revolutionary/terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez—a.k.a. Carlos The Jackal. The film is a long one all right, but Assayas and his star (the vivid Édgar Ramírez) craft an absorbing and quite detailed portrait of a megalomaniacal bad man and the worldwide politics that gave birth to him. 332 minutes Unrated.
