Manuscripts Don't Burn

Despite being banned from filmmaking for 20 years (along with his countryman Jafar Panahi; see 10/26), Iranian director Mohammad Rasoulof has secretly shot this angry new thriller, based on real events, about the lengths to which the Islamic state will go to silence dissidents. These include kidnaping, torture, and murder. “Easily the most daring and politically provocative film yet to emerge from Iran.” –
