    The movie is a minor triumph of sincerity, neatly skirting the pitfalls of narcissism and unexamined misogyny. It never mugs for our good will, only our witness, which it rewards with honesty and wit.

    This film is an inevitable product of our age, and enjoyable, right up to whatever your ickiness threshold is.

    While some may bail early, those who stay to the end are likely to dwell on Zahedi's unwavering (some would say unrelenting) belief in his own artistry, as well as the film's many funny, quotable lines.
  4. What this is remains mysterious after a single viewing, but not so mysterious as to inspire a second.

    As for the overriding reason to see the film, that's easy. Lighten Zahedi's complexion, stuff him in a fright wig, and this fellow would be a ringer for Harpo Marx.

    A minor masterpiece of tone.
