I have yet to see a bad FilmMovement movie.

I absolutely loved this film. From the initial description I thought it was going to be hard to watch, but give it a chance and you'll be pleasantly surprised at the wonderful cultural elements.

The soundtrack hypnotised me and I wish I could find it online... so good!

This eye-opening documentary follows an African-American basketball player who is playing professional basketball in Iran. The film presents an interesting portrait even for those who aren't basketball fans.

I had a little trouble focusing at first on this documentary but later (with more energy) got into it. The Iranian women are a good counter-balance to the macho urge to win and difficult with defeat. I especially liked the vibrancy, humor and intelligance of the woman physical therapy assistant.

Short Political TV clips are an interesting subtle comment - at the end it is clear that Iran is similar to the US - within the country there are people who don't match the stereotype and who like any other human being have to live within the confines of their culture ((good and bad)).
