Critic Reviews for A Man of Integrity (Lerd)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

An uncompromising drama from one of Iran's most outspoken directors.

May 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Although the film will be banned in its home nation, fests and niche arthouse distributors in most territories will welcome this brave, underground production for the way it manages to resonate on both specific and universal levels.

Top Critic

It's an uncompromisingly - perhaps too unremittingly bitter -wholesale condemnation of an insidiously corrupt bureaucracy, legal system and society.

Nov 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A saturnine morality tale that unfolds in shades of rainy gray beneath leaden, overcast skies, gritting up the nation's cinematic tradition of humanist drama to an almost unrecognizable degree.

Oct 30, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

A Man Of Integrity is quite satisfying, a sardonic punchline that is bound to (intentionally) frustrate and delight the audience.

Rasoulof keeps the action apace, but his characters never explain or narrate. A Western viewer must piece together town relationships as a puzzle.

Audience Reviews for A Man of Integrity (Lerd)

Rasoulof makes a daring film that exposes the endemic corruption, hellish bureaucracy and outrageous oppression embedded in Iranian society as we witness a decent man sinking deep into a nightmare and forced by some appalling circumstances to betray everything he stands for.
