Brave, challenging, and brimming with rage, Manuscripts Don't Burn is a political statement as much as it is a gripping thriller.

The result asserts the two-headed truism: Artists in many countries will always find grim, sometimes deadly opposition, and those same artists will continue to risk everything to remain alive inside.
A crackling, tense thriller, graced with beautifully measured performances, that explores with wisdom and sorrow the best and worst in human nature.
Unlike Rasoulof and Panahi's previous, more metaphorical films, this one confronts its subject head-on with unflinching candor.
A fairly gripping thriller, and Rasoulof's most angry work to date.
Mohammad Rasoulof's slow-burning, clandestinely made fifth feature is a brave, challenging look at Iran's feared security apparatus.
Its chilly, muted colors, claustrophobic framings and understated performances by an excellent cast recall '70s American suspensers such as "The Conversation" and "Klute."
Iranian filmmakers have a history of couching their criticisms of life in Iran in metaphor. This film puts its portrait of authoritarian oppression out in the open.
Unlike most thrillers, political or otherwise, there isn't a satisfyingly cathartic conclusion to Manuscripts Don't Burn.
A searing indictment of the current regime in Iran, this daring and brave piece deserves as wide an audience as possible.
"Manuscripts Don't Burn" is one of the best films I've seen this year, and one of the hardest to watch.
Rosoulof's film is shocking, relentless, a remarkable piece of work.
The results are challenging and alarming; the film-making brave and defiant.
