You need to see the entire 5-hour film that showed on Sundance in 2010. Carlos the Jackal, his nom de guerre, came from an aristocratic Venezuelan family, was highly educated, and attracted to the revolution. The film follows his first leadership roles when he is based in Paris by the PLA, with whom he trained. His revolutionary zeal is international and includes working with Germans, Japanese, Mideasterners, Spanish.... This is a thrilling movie that focuses on Carlos's many revolutionary acts, many of which were questionable. He had a big ego and morphed into a cause-less mercenary, hunted down by govts until he was finally captured. Today he sits in a Parisian prison for the rest of his life.
