Jafar Panahi Iran, 2018

Jason's rating of the film 3 Faces

While I do think 3 FACES is Panahi's finest film since his nominal filmmaking ban, it does not quite measure up to his early masterpieces (this is no CRIMSON GOLD). I do not think Panahi himself will ever be his own best subject, and much of the local colour is handled in an undercooked and fanciful manner. He is often at his best, however, when showing solidarity w/ women and girls. Behnaz Jafari owns the screen.
