Vulture Premieres a Clip From Olivier Assayas’s Carlos


Opening Friday at New York's Lincoln Plaza Cinemas and the IFC Center — and screening in three parts on the Sundance channel this week — is Carlos, Olivier Assayas's five-hour megamovie on the life of Venezuelan terrorist Carlos the Jackal. In his review in this week's New York, David Edelstein says, "Shot by shot, scene by scene, it’s a fluid and enthralling piece of work. I wasn’t bored for a millisecond." IFC has given Vulture a clip from part one, in which Carlos (Édgar Ramírez) romances a lady with a grenade. Enjoy!
