Dir. Abbas Kiarostami (1990). The epitome of Kiarostamis self-reflexive neo neo-realism, in which non-actors play themselves in reconstructions of actual events, is this hall-of-mirrors documentary portrait of an Iranian film fan who passes himself off as director Mohsen Makhmalbaf. Authentic inauthenticity, as well as vice versa, its at once a satire of celebrity culture and a triumph of willfully imperfect cinema.
