    It's a meaty film, filled with ideas unobscured by any generic narrative string, a move that shows not only the confidence of the director but his respect of the audience. This is one that'll have people talking.

    The film is generally undramatic. However, that’s hardly a criticism — while Closed Curtain digs deep into the psyche of an artist, it also is full of the ordinary, organic life moments that have populated Panahi's work since the beginning.

    A layered and hilarious look at the dynamics of family, relationships, and need.

    Avoiding easy answers and engaging on various levels, Policeman is exactly the kind of film that makes one excited about the art again.

    Though maybe a bit too stiff and straight-laced, Barbara is a frequently subtle, moderately interesting character study set in a grievous East Germany during the 1980s.

    It's a very competent black comedy, one that should please audiences looking for something with some bite.
