An electrifying, 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 1970s and 1980s. Directed and co-written by Olivier Assayas (SUMMER HOURS), 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 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
