Olivier Assayas' latest effort Carlos hijacked the Cannes Film Festival this summer. Clocking in at a five-and-a-half hours, this portrait of the notorious terrorist-mercenary is shown here in the three-parts a la Soderbergh's Che and The Red Riding Trilogy.  

Carlos tells the story of Ilich Ramirez Sanchez (played by Edgar Ramirez), a central figure in international terrorism of the 1970s and 1980s, with involvement in causes ranging from pro-Palestinian activism to the Japanese Red Army. For two decades he  was one of the world's most wanted terrorists. He lived several lives under various pseudonyms, weaving his way through the complexities of international politics of the period. He was at once a figure of the extreme left and an opportunistic mercenary in the pay of powerful governments. He formed his own organization, basing it behind the Iron Curtain, and was active during the final years of the Cold War.

A daring and amazing biography of a still-living figure, delving into international politics, terrorism, history, religion, sex and much more. Assayas handles all the issues with staggering dexterity, intelligence and skill. The film is nothing short of a must see!

"Think of The Bourne Identity with more substance, or Munich with more of a pulse, and you begin to have a sense of what the French filmmaker accomplished with this globetrotting and epic look at one man's rise to the station of international guerrilla leader and terrorist celebrity."- Los Angeles Times

Screening in three parts in order daily.
