Iranian Cinema: A Political History by Hamid Reza SadrThis book reveals the history of Iran through its cinema as Sadr uses the films themselves to tell the story of shifting political, economic and social situations. The book covers the broad spectrum of Irans cinema, offering vivid descriptions of key films and recurring themes and tropes, such as the preponderance of images of childhood, and what these reveal about Iranian society. It includes films throughout the 20th century with special emphasis on recent films influenced by September 11, from Mohsen Makhmalbafs astonishing Kandahar to Saddiq Barmaks angry work Osama.
And yet Iranian film has had a long and lively history — one that began well before Taste of Cherry and has often been fraught with political and social controversy. Perhaps not the most entertaining movie, The Cow, a psychological drama, portrays a poor villager who is so upset by the loss of his cow that he begins to think he is the cow, eating hay and living in the barn. The shah banned The Cow for depicting the country as poor and backward, but it is rumored that Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini respected the film so much that it was the reason he did not ban movies outright in Caesar is one of the first to develop what is perhaps my favorite Iranian film archetype, the Iranian antihero. This film signaled a turn to increased depictions of violence in Iranian cinema in the s and appealed to a whole generation of young Iranians who liked the idea of vigilante justice. It was these same kids who overthrew the shah, many sporting the Caesar hairdo.
