With terrorism so much at the fore of the news today, the story of Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, the infamous Venezuelan Marxist militant responsible for many terrorist attacks throughout the 70’s and early 80’s, including the 1975 raid of the OPEC meeting, seems quite apposite to today’s post-9/11 environment.
Director Olivier Assayas’ sprawling 3-part miniseries follows two decades in the life of Sanchez, known to the world as Carlos (Édgar Ramírez), from his early days as a militant activist in France, his involvement with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), through to the end of his run in the Sudan.
This release also contains an edited 2 ½-hour version intended to run in the cinemas.
