It seems that Olivier Assayas' 5 hour film on Carlos the Jackal may actually be quite good. Certainly I've always found Assayas' work impressive. Unlike Steven Soderbergh, who seemed like precisely the wrong director to make a film about Che, this seems like a good fit, even at 5 hours.

Certainly the buzz surrounding Carlos is quite positive.
