HD Digital presentation - Olivier Assayas electrified the Cannes Film Festival with CARLOS, his epic and definitive portrait of the notorious international terrorist known as Carlos the Jackal, who masterminded a wave of terror attacks in Europe and the Middle East in the ’70s and ’80s. Venezuelan actor Édgar Ramírez stars in the title role. Co-written by Assayas and Dan Franck, CARLOS illustrates the evolution of contemporary terrorism as it examines the life of its title character, a Venezuelan whose real name is Ilich Ramírez Sánchez. Tracing the arc of Carlos’ criminal activities across two decades and several nations, the film features a dynamic cast of international talent and was shot in numerous countries, including Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Lebanon, and Morocco.

“[An] epic achievement… Nothing I’ve encountered on any size screen matches the lucidity of this fact-based fiction—it amounts to a textbook on state-sponsored terrorism—and nothing I’ve seen in recent years has held my attention so relentlessly. CARLOS also stood as a textbook case of the total immersion that one can enjoy only in a theatrical setting.” – Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal

“An event… an outrageous political gangster film… possibly the most universally admired movie among the Cannes Film Festival’s official selections. – J. Hoberman, Film Comment

“An astonishing film… In what is certainly his best work, French director Olivier 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…The film’s scope, range and ambition are incredible.” – Todd McCarthy
