New Meetup: Film - Carlos

From: Geoff
Sent on: Monday, October 18, 2010 3:19 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Oxford Spanish Intercambio Meetup Group!

What: Film - Carlos

When: Tuesday, October 26,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Freud
119 Walton St

French, German & Spanish with English subtitles (165mins)

Played by the brilliant Edgar Ram?rez, Carlos, known as "Carlos the Jackal," is a Venezuelan terrorist now serving a life sentence in France for a reign of terror he began in the 1970s. Directed by Olivier Assayas (Summer Hours), the movie crawls hypnotically into the skin of this global assassin and astonishes you with its brazenly violent and sexual audacity. It's a dynamite movie, and you can see it in the full 330-minute version or the 140-minute cut. Either way, see it. It'll knock you sideways.

Olivier Assayas' meticulously realised and detailed film is all at once a lesson in geopolitics and the history of terrorism, a deconstruction of mythic heroism, a complex character study, and a gripping action thriller. Ram?rez, who shares Carlos' Venezuelan origins, his polyglotism, and even his surname, plays the international militant with a mesmerising blend of narcissism, charisma and arrogant swagger, incarnating the contradictions of a misogynist who would stop at nothing to spring his lover from jail, and of a committed Marxist who would develop a penchant for fine clothes, expensive cars and luxury dwellings.

The film starts at 8:30pm, meet in Freud's Wine Bar between 7:00pm and 8:15pm, Walton Street, opposite side to the Phoenix, a little bit closer to town.

If you are going to purchase tickets on the day, it is strongly suggested you buy them before going to Freud's.
