My observation of some of the unfolding political events tell me that people still hold on to old labels in order to explain the current political climate. Criticism is imperative but using a label like “Fascism” for example does not apply any more. Fascism grew out of a particular political situati ... Read more

There are similarities between the Celts, Huns and Iranians. There were Iranians tribes that also lived outside of Persian empires and were independent, for example the Alana tribe. Both Huns and Celt share similarities in language, mythology and even arts. For example there is an uncanny resemblan ... Read more

This is a good example of the fanatical hardliners in Iran. They are blinded by their religious ideology and resent the success of anyone outside their club. They resort to any act of treachery, disguised under religious cloak to discredit, ban and condemn anyone who do not agree with them.

I really like Farhadi's kitchen sink dramas. The interpretation of a film sometimes gets harder and harder when the film is made in a country like Iran.

This is what Anthony Lane from New Yorker wrote:

"What matters is what does not happen next. An American woman, taken to a hospital—as Rana is—to have her injury treated, would be asked about the circumstances, and law enforcement would be called. Not here. When Emad suggests going to the police, h ... Read more
