Sneak Peek of the Acclaimed Miniseries 'Carlos'

Carlos'Carlos' is the kind of thought-provoking, timely miniseries that the broadcast networks just don't make anymore.

The three-part miniseries, which debuts on Sundance Channel Oct. 11, follows the infamous career of the notorious terrorist Carlos the Jackal. "Behind every bullet is an idea," Carlos tells an associate early on, and for two decades, the murderous 'ideas' of the former Ilich Ramirez Sanchez made him one of the most wanted men in the world.

I've only seen the first hour of the six-hour film, and it looks quite intriguing. But don't take my word for it -- take that of indieWire's Todd McCarthy, one of the best film critics in the business. Here's what he had to say (in part) about 'Carlos': "In what is certainly his best work, French director Olivier Assayas adopts a fleet, ever-propulsive style that creates an extraordinary you-are-there sense of verisimilitude, while Edgar Ramirez inhabits the title role with arrogant charisma of Brando in his prime. It's an astonishing film."

Below is a video preview of Sundance Channel's 'Carlos':
