Finally! I missed it at Vancouver Film Festival and has been regretting it ever since.

Would you mind fixing the links, though? Their length creates a horizontal scrollbar for those using 1024x768 or lower. If you don't want to do it I could hack your entry for you. :wink:

I hope he includes a short film about the feud he had
w/ mark cuban, hopefully called "food fight with caveh".
Then I would probably rent it.

Has anyone seen this though? A Persian lady I met before the L'Enfant Vancouver premiere last year highly recommended this movie, comparing it to those of Woody Allen. I have also heard from many that it is one of the best films last year.

Here is an essay by Darren at Long Pauses. I haven't read it because I haven't seen the film.

I missed it too at Istanbul Film Festival but heard very good reviews about it from friends who had seen the film. From what I heard about the film, Zahedi has good reference linkages from Jean Luc Godard to Ed Pincus as well. The idea has also recalled me Jim McBride's film David Holzman's Diary at first sight.

What's this - a Michael Douglas biopic? :P

I have seen the film and its quite good. Very original and clever. It takes about 30 minutes to really get used to Caveh and the film's seemingly improvisational style. This really is a warts-and-all expose of Caveh himself as he deals with his several relationships with women and his obsession with prostitutes and sex. Its quite funny and at time very touching, especially the film's ending which is quite eloquent and moving considering the events that precede it.
