A Week In Film #094: Mojo returns!

The Assignment
Bloody awful thriller based on the premise that top-flight 70s international terrorist has a double. Aiden Quinn, Donald Sutherland and Ben Kingsley, directed by Christian Duguay, who did so much better with Screamers.

Carlos (film version) title screen
Olivier Assayas (Boarding Gate) tackles the story of Ilich Ramírez Sánchez much more satisfactorily, from passionate idealism, through pragmatic expediency, to cynical decadence. Édgar Ramírez is excellent in the title role.
