Panahi continues his fugitive cinema, now five years and three movies into his 20-year ban, with results that remain inventive and altogether inspiring… What Panahi creates is an act of defiance at its most affable and subtly provocative, where the camera as an object is given a deeply meaningful sense of physicality. What happens to this object, then, is a twist that resonates like a cruel violation.

Good to see [Panahi] going back to people – his best subject – after the dead-end introspection of Closed Curtain, good to see him in high spirits generally, though the film is in no way ‘real’ (it’s clearly staged, incl. camera angles that couldn’t have come from that dashboard-cam) and is also quite didactic behind the good humour, almost every encounter turning into a discussion of sexism, racism, capital punishment or Islamic strictures on movie-making.

Taxi has a grand sense of humour. It rather lovingly suggests that crime and punishment are relative terms; one man’s serious offence is another woman’s slap on the wrist. What’s clear, though, is that the cinema can help clarify these gradations when examined by artists that still see hope in human nature and art itself.

Recensioni e valutazioni

  • Kenji's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    Second viewing confirms this is a masterpiece; engrossing, surprising, with Kiarostami-esque fact-fiction blurring and layering, but more layers still- like the nod to Kiarostami's Ten, the conditions the film has to be made in, and above all, Panahi's defiant courage.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    4++ Delightful film, clever, great acting and the whole thing is tightly wound, Again, Panahi makes a lot out of a very simple idea, this time he's driving several different people around town. Goldfish and a cute kid again figure prominently. Sure, you could watch this simple picture on your computer screen, but I am glad I saw it in a theater on a Saturday afternoon.

  • chanandre's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    Getting the feeling that the "behind bars, thus unable to shoot films at all" (yet always premiering @ International Fests) is a hoax; a brilliant one at that. Lots of insincerity here. He was a total douche to that sweet film student: "No one can help you". Really?Was that what you're taught in film school? Sure :o Rape-y>exploiting everything & everyone to serve his intents. Nothing faker nor more staged than this.

  • Andrei Herea's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    A film that underlines several systemic problems in modern day Iran, alongside facets of human behaviour that are more or less universal. The take on Islamic rules in cinema was rather interesting, however for all the good of this film, its artificial nature drags the film down - one only has to look at the ending... However, there's enough good material to warrant a view. Who knows, it might just inspire you.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    The third of Jafar Panahi's "not films", surprisingly jolly despite the echoes of dismay and righteousness. Structured like a series of possible films passing through Panahi's car, part of the fun is guessing how much is staged. But the overall feeling is that of a great mass of humanity teeming under the radar, which no authoritarian regime could hope to control. The year's most huggable act of civil disobedience.

  • Warren Spratley's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    I want to proclaim that this is a masterwork, but I'm not sure Panahi is consistently successful in his particular manner of suspending between documentary & fiction. It's a question of scenic rhythm perhaps, of the way conflict sometimes penetrates this limiting yet rewarding cinematic space, a taxi. The artificiality becomes too glaring? I don't know. Mostly, I was transfixed by its humor, its narrative surprises.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    FNC '15 What is a showable film? Panahi again finds a way around his ban from filmmaking in Iran with this wise and playful exercise that has an underlying anger underneath, best seen when his niece reads her teacher's notes to him for her filmmaking assignment. Mind you this is not documentary but a scripted film that may even seem derivative at times but never in a way that takes away from the power of the piece.

  • Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Jafar Panahi's Taxi

    One can wonder how is it possible that the Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi, who was sentenced by the authoritarian regime of his country to 20 years without making cinema, still manages to direct clandestine masterpieces with a disarming simplicity, emotional truthfulness, social-political awareness, and delightfully humorous situations.
