Carlos

Movie Information

In Brief: Part two of Olivier Assayas' critically-acclaimed TV mini-series (that also saw a theatrical release), Carlos.(It is being shown over the next two weeks in two more installments by World Cinema.) Covering 20 years and taking place all over the world, the story of Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez (aka Carlos) is an exhaustive — and occasionally exhausting — examination of its subject. Even so, it's delivered in large chunks that are just slapped together in a way that can make it hard to follow.
