    Wind of Jinn

    ★★★★★

    A serpentine depiction of a winding topic, Wind of Jinn not only succeeds at representing the niche local ritual of Zaar, but it manages to surpass its absurdity.

  • Tehran Taboo

    Tehran Taboo

    ★½

    The general reaction to this film is a telling example of the western audience not properly comprehending the intricacies of Iranian narrative. The film is grossly over-the-top in representing sexuality in Tehran and the issues surrounding it. The points that the film is trying to make are so tired that they're almost proverbial.

    Harakiri

    ★★★★★

    An astonishing tale of honor and vengeance. The sonic atmosphere is specially mesmerizing.

  • The Paternal House

    The Paternal House

    ★★★★

    The Paternal House is the epitome of cinema of confinement, and a good example to show that Connelly's explication of such cinema is inherently flawed.
