Marooned in Iraq
Dir. Bahman Ghobadi (2003). Kurdish director Bahman Ghobadis music-fueled road movie is set on the Iraq-Iran border in the gruesome aftermath of the first Gulf War. Cast with non-actors and crowded with cartoon bluster, Marooned turns increasingly grim as its troubadours approach Iraq; lusty and heartfelt, it has a visual energy thats almost Breughelian and a humanist passion as contagious as its music.
