Jafar Panahi Iran, 2003

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.
