This biopic about terrorist/revolutionary Carlos the Jackal is one of 2010's most acclaimed movies. It originally aired as a three-part, five-and-a-half-hour TV miniseries. The Cinematheque is showing the 166-minute theatrical cut that snagged so much praise last year. It's a stunning piece, charting the rise and fall of the charismatic Venezuelan at the center of it all. And don't let its small-screen origin fool you this epic should be seen in a theater.
