Carlos is an epic, intensely detailed account of the life of the infamous international terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sanchez - also known as Carlos the Jackal. One of the 20th century’s most-wanted fugitives, Carlos was committed to violent left-wing activism throughout the 1970s and the 1980s, orchestrating bombings, kidnappings, and hijackings in Europe and the Middle East. Assayas portrays him not as a criminal mastermind but as a symbol of seismic political shifts around the world, and the magnetic Édgar Ramírez brilliantly embodies him as a swaggering global gangster.
