Critic Reviews for Shirin
One of Abbas Kiarostami's trickiest and most radical experimental works.
Shirin offers a feast for the bedazzled eye and a crash course in narrative obsession for the benumbed mind.
Watching a movie in a movie theater is an act of collective loneliness. Shirin makes that loneliness cathartic, but by not showing the film within the film, Kiarostami avoids transforming it into entertainment.
The obvious artifice of the picture track, scarcely less stylized than the mythic soundtrack, seems to exclude the kind of obvious appeal documentary might have.
