Critic Reviews for The Iran Job
A lively, engaging documentary directed by the German filmmaker Till Schauder ...
The film takes a distinctly American approach to Iranian matters of gender relations and religious extremism, shedding little light on subjects that are far more complicated than Schauder makes them out to be.
I confess to being a sucker for sports movies, the ones with the "Big Game" at the end. "The Iran Job" has all the requisite elements of that cinematic subgenre, but strives for something deeper.
This observant documentary avoids pedagogy; it's not always artful, but it has a relaxed, light touch that never topples into pretension.
The sports drama gives The Iran Job a strong hook, while the cultural context enriches the movie's real story, which is less about Sheppard's life in Iran than about the people he meets.
