BY: Abbas Kiarostami

Seja documentário ou ficção, o todo é sempre uma grande mentira que contamos. Nossa arte consiste em contá-la de modo que acreditem nela. Se uma parte é documentário e outra parte é reconstituição, isso diz respeito ao método de trabalho, não ao público. 38 more words


The Circle (Jafar Panahi, 2000)

The life and work of Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi has become a major story in recent years within both global politics and film history. From the ever-evolving accusations of acting against national security and spreading anti-government propaganda by the Iranian state, to the overwhelming support received from the international film community in opposition to his imprisonment, Panahi is one of the most talked about artists on the planet.  433 more words


Certified Copy (2010)

Intriguing, challenging and immediately rewatchable.  Juliette Binoche and William Shimell spend what may or may not be a random day together.  Shimell in particular is outstanding.

Rating: Great (4)

Certified Copy (2010)

Certified Copy is the first Kiarostami film I’ve seen and one I’ve been waiting to tick off for some time. It’s appearance on many “Best of the Decade So Far” lists just gave me that extra kick to finally land the blu-ray in the player. 286 more words
