Critic Reviews for Jafar Panahi's Taxi
iven the option, Panahi might prefer to move onto fresh material -- but as man and artist, he seems to be surviving as well as could be hoped.
Panahi's status as a martyr for his art could have gulled him into loftiness and pride; and yet, by some miracle, Taxi stays as modest as his smile, the point being not to recruit us to his cause but to put us on the side of his compatriots.
Jafar Panahi's Taxi looks onto a world where the social order and the spiritual order are at odds, in flux, where the conversations are sometimes cutting, sometimes comic, sometimes troubled, sometimes profound.
Panahi has made a work of invention and brio that remains visually lively throughout, despite its formal restrictions.
Audience Reviews for Jafar Panahi's Taxi
Panahi dodges his 20-year ban in secrecy with this revealing and highly provocative piece of cinema verité that says a lot about Iranian society in general and even finds the most perfect moment to comment on the absurd censorship rules imposed on artistic freedom in Iran.
