Critic Reviews for Shirin
One of Abbas Kiarostami's trickiest and most radical experimental works.
Shirin offers a feast for the bedazzled eye and a crash course in narrative obsession for the benumbed mind.
The obvious artifice of the picture track, scarcely less stylized than the mythic soundtrack, seems to exclude the kind of obvious appeal documentary might have.
(Kiarostami) studies the roadmap of the face, faces of women both young and old, faces framed by head scarves that are limned by the flickering light of the faux movie screen.
