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