Crimson Gold

by

Dir. Jafar Panahi (2003).
Jafar Panahi’s deadpan dark comedy begins and ends with a real-time, fixed-camera jewelry-store robbery. As usual with this now-jailed Iranian director, Tehran is a character and there’s a tremendous, impassive tragicomic performance by nonpro Hossain Emadeddin.
