Critic Reviews for Mahi va gorbeh (Fish & Cat)

Mokri's eye for dashing aesthetics also renders his film bloated and drifting off-tangent.

Shahram Mokri's highly original second feature combines formal experimentation with a sly sense of humor and a surprising feeling for American genre conventions.

Mokri does such a good job messing with your head that you might overlook the extraordinary ensemble players, who easily navigate the cascading narrative turns.

Feb 5, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's easy to praise Iranian director Shahram Mokri's Fish & Cat for its conceptual daring and technical achievement and much harder to sit through its agonisingly slow and repetitive 134 minutes.

The rare example of when it's fun to be f***ed with. Frankly, you can't buy reveals as good as Fish & Cat's got.

Jun 12, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The film is a game: Shahram Mokri challenges his viewers to grip parallel narrative threads in what feels like suspiciously real time, rather than to assemble or contextualize any metaphorical ones.
