Jafar Panahi Iran, 2003

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.
