Interview With Olivier Assavas, The Writer and Director of Carlos

I watched Carlos tonight on Comcast's On Demand channel.

I thought the film was outstanding. Although the film billed itself as a fictional account of the pre-9/11 terrorist Ilich Ramierz Sanchez, aka Carlos, the film was historically accurate.

Thankfully, the film did not, like Che, glorify a murderer and terrorist. The film's gritty realism reminded me of The Baader Meinhof Complex, another fine film about terrorism.

The Scottish newspaper The Scotsman offered an interview with the film's writer and director, Olivier Assavas.
