And call it 'The Adventures of the Chocolate Monk', as a tribute to Cannonball Run.

I saw the 5 1/2 hour version in Detroit last weekend...utterly astounded. I've been having health issues with my chest recently and literally about half-way through the film my chest started acting up...but I couldn't pull myself from my seat! (I was partly hoping the pain would go away and at one point it did dull down, but I actualy ended up going to the emergency room after the screening!) But the intensity, the excitement, the acting, the facts, the women...it was all completley mind-boggling. I was glued to my seat! I didn't really know anything about CARLOS and had actually never heard of him (but I have been a fan of ASSAYAS since DEMONLOVER) so to watch this film and to be thinking that this REALLY happened? W-O-W. Another astounding thing is just the fact of who Carlos was connected to in his 20 year-odd run and how this one man has kind of shaped how the world has turned out...SCARY!

Great interview. Looking foward to this, especially after watching the Mesrine two parter. Beaks, what other Assayas movies are good?

Very different from CARLOS but a very good Assayas film

It was good but it wasn't some hyper actively paced kind of thing that jumps scene to scene. I actually liked that it was more subdued.

IRMA VEP was one of the best films of the '90s. As Snooty Boots said, it's one of the best films about filmmaking. Also a huge fan of LATE AUGUST, EARLY SEPTEMBER and DEMONLOVER (which I reviewed for AICN back in '02). Would also recommend LES DESTINEES SENTIMENTALES, BOARDING GATE and SUMMER HOURS.

BOARDING GATE, an awesome European thriller with Michael Madsen, Asia Argento and her sexy tattoos!

...is playing the central character in The Bourne Legacy. I know it.

MR BEAKS - great interview btw...so glad you covered this film on AICN as I have been obsessing over it and want to know anything and everything about it...so thanks! BLUELOU_BOYLE - I stand fully behind all of Beaks recomendations...the great thing about ASSAYAS is that all his films are really quite different from each other but still have his filmmaking style...I would also thrown CLEAN in the mix...a cool kind of Rock N' Roll movie akin to say, SID & NANCY.

... then it will be fantastic. Can't wait. Besides the freaky aspect that i share the same first name with this wel known terrorist/mercenary, or at least his noum de guerre. Thanks for the heads up, Mr Beaks. Your comparison of Bay's movies with Samuel Beckett is still wrong, though.
