Rich, surprisingly sexual drama of Iran's 2009 Green protests explores seductive pulls of both revolution and complacency.
Rare in its political ideas, sexual frankness, and blends of the two. Amir is right: films like this would profit from not making a "point" at every turn. Still, it's engaging and layered.
