Three-Part Epic Features A Post-Punk Mix Of Wire, The Feelies, New Order & MoreThis writer finally caught up with Olivier Assayas' sprawling three-part epic, "Carlos," starring the excellent Edgar Ramirez and centering on the rise and downfall of Ilich Ramírez Sánchez aka "Carlos The Jackal," the international terrorist who menaced the world in the 1970s (this author also agrees most with our review from Cannes; it's pretty engaging at first, but then tends to drag in its last half).

Gathering dust for nearly two years before Roadside Attractions picked it up, we didn't have much expectations for John Irvin's (best known for directing the Brit TV mini-series version of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy") "Hemingway's Garden Of Eden."

Every year, there's always one film that screens at a fall festival and, overnight, becomes a major awards contender. In 2008, it was "Slumdog Millionaire," in 2009 it was "Up in the Air." This year, the rapturous reaction that "The King's Speech" received at Telluride, and its Audience Award win at Toronto, saw the period drama take its place as a lock among the ten Best Picture nominees, and perhaps the only film to emerge from the field as of yet that could challenge the presumptive front-runner "The Social Network." Having missed it at Toronto, we had one question going into the film's premiere at the London Film Festival on Thursday night: was the film that rarity, a classy period piece that connects with audiences and critics alike, or the kind of easy, older-skewing drama that connects with Academy voters because it's so IMPORTANT (see "The Reader").
