  3. thelastronaut's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    My first and probably favorite Panahi film. Amazing how the lead actor's real life paranoid schizophrenia comes through and somehow adds to and maybe even reinforces the mayhem.

  4. João Portalegre's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    this has got some amazing camera work like holy shit

  5. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Astonishing first sequence. Best bank robbery i have seen to date. More suggested than actually shown (most of the action is outside the scope, the sound and the eyes of the third guy - the watchman - made for it). Locked behind the bars with the main characters, the spectator feels he is condemned as well. Unforgettable opening !

  6. sputnixed's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    hussein is depressing as fuck. this one reminds me a lot of taxi driver.

  7. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    "Crimson Gold" is not an easy film to watch and it is by no means perfect. However,it is a film that will leave you with many questions,not just about life in Iran,but elsewhere in the world.Hussein is a pizza delivery man,with mental issues,brought on by his war experiences.In his job he witness's the social divide and the way the Authorities treat people differently.When a shopkeeper looks down on him.He snaps!

  8. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Makes for an interesting comparison with Close Up.

  9. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Como en otros filmes de Panahi, una trama es excusa para emprender una crítica social, en esta ocasión al establishment iraní y su proceso de coacción, uno que reprime la libertad de una sociedad perseguida y desencantada. En un genial fragmento, el protagonista coincide con un Woody Allen iraní, neurótico, enfermo por ese contexto que lo rodea, además de su lío amoroso. Lo resto, no deja de compenetrar y conmover.

  10. alvaro03's rating of the film Crimson Gold

  11. Joel's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Ultimately unfullfiling but still an interesting journey in the shoes of an an unlikely protagonist. I feel some of the depth of the context is lost in the translation.

  12. Gonçalo Loureiro's rating of the film Crimson Gold

  13. Miggy Angel's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    directed by Panahi & written by Abbas Kiarostami – what a team! begins with a terrible crime, then proceeds to bring the viewer into the world of a downtrodden pizza delivery man. few films have explicated as well as this has the atmosphere of shame, alienation, primal disillusionment & quietly suffocating desperation which exists upon society’s margins & out of which much crime is born. a classic of humanist cinema.

  14. Antonio Albagli's rating of the film Crimson Gold

  15. filippo's rating of the film Crimson Gold

  16. dalena's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Thematically similar to Kurosawa's "High and Low" and Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" but the main character's intentions are so vague that it casts a veil of mystery and tension enough to drive the story full circle. This is the first Panahi film I've had the chance to watch. I'm surprised of how openly critical he is compared to his good friend Kiarostami.

  17. Christoffer's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    The subtle and expressionless acting of the main character contributes to illustrate the mind of a psychotic man on the edge of sanity, but this film for me also is a culture study of a society where social classes are still painly visible.

  18. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Hossain, the actor, is such a marvellous presence. Half the film's work is done just by casting him.

  19. Aram's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    I think "this is not a film"...

  20. rijessett's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    The best commentary on the rigidity and doom of social caste since Les Miserables

  21. N!nA's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Film is full of mistakes. A total rubbish movie!

  22. Øyvind Rype's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    It's definetely flawed and at times very boring but the whole idea of a poor man getting a random taste of a rich man's life and then thrown back into his everyday life is very interesting to watch. I'm giving it 4 weak stars.

  23. All Is Grace's rating of the film Crimson Gold

  24. Thorsten's rating of the film Crimson Gold

    Not as good as Panahi's The Circle, but still: does what cinema in Iran does best: documenting the absurdities of its society.
