Our take

Intrepidly demythologizing the terrorist-celebrity Carlos the Jackal, Olivier Assayas’s political thriller is a stunning drama, which disentangles complicated geopolitical ideas while skilfully steering a number of enthralling, action-packed set pieces. And all to a dynamite punk ’80s soundtrack!
