An uncompromising drama from one of Iran's most outspoken directors.
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.
It's an uncompromisingly - perhaps too unremittingly bitter -wholesale condemnation of an insidiously corrupt bureaucracy, legal system and society.
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.
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.
The journey towards the ethical rot of a man who is at the crossroads of wanting to maintain his integrity and perish or adapt to the environment in which he lives and subsists. [Full review in Spanish]
A satisfyingly gritty addition to Iran's tradition of humanist cinema.
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.
