Such extraordinary, carefully deployed details pronounce both This Is Not a Film’s mastery and its abounding sadness and outrage. In just over and hour, Panahi and Mirtahmasb communicate more than most filmmakers, all while vigilantly minding what they say.

The film reaches an unexpected crescendo in the final ten minutes or so, as Panahi follows his doorman on rubbish-collection routine. Unexpectedly cathartic, this sequence is a powerful testament to Panahi’s filmmaking dexterity, his capacity to find poetic substance in the most ordinary of situations. THIS IS NOT A FILM is built from nothing, and yet every moment has a powerful urgency to it.
