Jason's rating of the film A Man of Integrity

If in order to make A MAN OF INTEGRITY Rasoulfod did indeed have to promise the state that he would not make something dark and critical, then the resulting film can only be understood as a totally brazen act of effrontery. And guess who once again doesn't have a passport. But this is some Ancient Greek shit. Basically avowedly universal. Power wants us to feel embattled. It wants to bring out the worst in us.
