trailer break: ‘Carlos’

With a long miniseries version debuting on TV and a shorter cut opening in theaters, Olivier Assayas’s epic about the notorious terrorist Carlos the Jackal should be an interesting test in new movie-release paradigms.

Frailty (review)

It sends a shiver up my spine just thinking about the movie now, even as I gaze out the window onto a gorgeous, happy, sunshiny day. It’ll be great when this one finally comes out on DVD, cuz then I’ll be able to curl up on the couch in the middle of the night wrapped in an old afghan for protection and give myself the wild heebie-jeebies watching it.
