The Circle

Dir. Jafar Panahi (2000).   Iranian director Jafar Panahi is a maestro of anxiety and what's consistent throughout his rondo of desperate women newly released from prison into to a patriarchal police state is the sense of urgency. This is a dark, sustained, and wrenching film, abstractly metaphoric yet powerfully concrete.
