Carlos-PosterLast week White Noise made mention of the French TV mini-series Carlos. In recent months Carlos has been playing the film festival circuit as a theatrical release following a 330 minute screening at cannes.

The shorter 319 minute (that’s 5 hours, 19 mins for those of you paying attention) version will be airing in Brisbane as part of the upcoming Brisbane International Film Festival. Alternatively, the mini-series is widely available on bittorrent.

I’m not sure how well it will play as a 5+ hour movie, but it is great to see that Carlos is getting some attention locally.

Again, it’s worth reiterating that its TV content like this that SBS really should be targetting. It’s an exciting TV event series that, if promoted well enough, would draw a healthy amount of interest. It will be interesting to see if the BIFF screening generates much of a turnout.

    I went to a 9+ hour Lord of the Rings back to back extended version of the trilogy a few years back. It was great to see it on the big screen but OMG – I was over sitting by the end of it – infact many ppl ended up lying on the carpet.. ewww
    Carolos interests me – but not 5 hours worth of interest away from a pillow and doona.
