• Carlos

One of the year’s best movies—and definitely the longest—screens this weekend at Music Box: the full-length, 330-minute cut of Carlos, which chronicles the 20-year career of the international terrorist known as Carlos the Jackal (our long review is here). Contary to the popular wisdom that attention spans are continuously contracting, Music Box has programmed three epic thrillers this year: the French gangster saga Mesrine (two parts, 246 minutes), the British police procedural Red Riding (three parts, 295 minutes), and now this (a 165-minute cut screens Monday through Friday for the faint of heart, or faint of ass, I should say).
