About the Movie
From Olivier Assayas, director of Irma Vep and Summer Hours, comes an explosive new work of astonishing scope; an epic portrayal of the notorious revolutionary and terrorist, Ilich Ramirez Sanchez: Carlos the Jackal. Born in Venezuela and politicised in Europe, Sanchez took the moniker "Carlos the Jackal", and for two decades was one of the most wanted terrorists on the planet. Best known for his infamous 1975 attack on the OPEC headquarters in Vienna, where he took more than 60 people-including the Oil Ministers of many member nations-hostage, Carlos managed to weave his way into the complexities of international politics with his attacks in Europe and the Middle East throughout the 70s and 80s. Spanning 20 years, Assayas' exciting, sexy, and globe-spanning portrait of the notorious international terrorist mastermind, Carlos the Jackal electrified audiences at its premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, and earned star Edgar Ramirez a Golden Globe nomination.
Brilliant portrayal of a complex, ruthless character and his acolytes. Just brilliantly acted. Is there anyone in the movie that doesn't smoke?
CARLOS THE JACKAL
THE worst movie i have seen for a LOOOONNNNNNGGGGGGG time.
I found this simplistic and not quite believable... I do not believe this is an accurate depiction of someone who evaded capture for decades.... He had to be a lot smarter than those chasing him...
