Assayas’ latest film is a bracing account of 20 years in the life of Carlos “the Jackal,” a Venezuelan guerrilla leader turned militant international terrorist. “Assayas adopts a fleet, ever-propulsive style that creates an extraordinary you-are-there sense of verisimilitude, while Edgar Ramirez inhabits the title role with the arrogant charisma of Brando in his prime. It’s an astonishing film . . . Carlos enters deep and dangerous waters as it takes on biography (of a still-living figure), international politics, terrorism, history, religion, sex, and much more and handles all the issues with staggering dexterity, intelligence, and skill”(indieWIRE ). 2010, video, in French, German, English, Spanish, and Arabic with English subtitles, 319 minutes. Screened with a 15- and 30-minute intermission.
