  1. Jason's rating of the film When God Sleeps

    Shahin Najafi makes for a worthy case study: who he is / what he represents is complex. This is a guy who grew up poor in small town Iran, at one point dreamed of being a cleric, and who because of his subsequent subversive activities ended up an arrogant if fitfully charming hipster songwriter in Cologne (w/ occasional man bun) w/ a fatwa looming over him. We dance usefully between admiration and critical appraisal.
