Manuscripts Don't Burn Regizat de Mohammad Rasoulof
It’s an enthralling work, a fine Iranian counterpart to the recent spate of films from post-Communist European territories which similarly explore the persecution of dissidents at the bidding of a corrupt regime, albeit more often with the safety net of years of history and democratic reforms between the films’ makings and the events depicted.

Judged by some standards, the film’s last third could use greater dramatic torque and deeper thematic probing. But this is not a standard political thriller. It is an unprecedented statement and damning analysis, an X-ray of not only the toxic political and personal motives that underlie the current regime’s murderous assault on dissent, but also of a society polarized between educated cosmopolitans on one side and often illiterate and credulous regime-supporters on the other.

Shot on the fly, with the cast and crew unnamed to avoid reprisals,“Manuscripts Don’t Burn” (the title is a quotation from a novel by the Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov) unfolds in appropriately wintry light. Its violence is low-tech — a clothespin and a suppository feature prominently — and its look is old-school, but its message could not possibly be more momentous.
