Carlos / Carlos the Jackal (2010) 3 x DVD9
"Carlos", Olivier Assayass' epic account of the life and myth of real-life terrorist Carlos the Jackal, is a mesmerizing portrait of committed activist who transforms himself into a media-hungry rock star of an international terrorist.

Ilich Ramirez Sanchez is a central figure in the history of international terrorism in the 1970s and 1980s, from pro-Palestinian activism to the Japanese Red Army. At once a figure of the extreme left and an opportunistic mercenary in the pay of powerful Middle Eastern secret services, he formed his own organisation based on the other side of the Iron Curtain which was active during the final years of the Cold War. Carlos is the story of a revolutionary internationalist, both manipulator and manipulated, as he is carried along by the currents of contemporary history and his own folly.
