Like Jafar Panahi (see Closed Curtain), Mohammad Rasoulof is under a 20-year filmmaking ban, and, like Panahi, he has made a clandestinely shot film, this one an angry political thriller focusing on two assassins working for Iran’s security apparatus. "A brave, challenging picture that makes the viewer complicit in the action…"—Variety
