Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [A] layered, intermittently fascinating documentary ...
Fresh: [A] lively, challenging documentary ...
Fresh: As a documentary about East-West tensions and freedom of speech during the Arab Spring, it's frequently fascinating.
Rotten: The film is ultimately more concerned with Caveh Zahedi's attempts to pursue a variety of dull passing fancies than with any larger agenda.
