ROSEWATER (2014) Reviewed

Spoiler AlertRosewater_poster

Recently I watched Jon Stewart‘s new movie, ROSEWATER, which is based on a true story. Gael García Bernal plays Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari who leaves his pregnant wife in London and goes to Iran to cover the 2009 Presidential elections between incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mir-Hossein Mousavi. Mr. Bahari publishes a satirical piece and is later imprisoned at Evin Prison where he was brutally interrogated.

I very much enjoyed the film. What was most interesting to me was the fatalistic acceptance of the Iranian Nationals on rebellion and the subsequent possibility of imprisonment/torture. It was as if they had been down-trodden for so long that such repercussions did not matter, and/or they were commonplace. Another aspect that I liked was the Kafkaesque and imbecilic features of Evin Prison and Mr. Bahari’s jailers. The scene when Mr. Bahari is interrogated and is asked who is Anton Chekhov, and why Mr. Bahari is a spy after viewing a segment Bahari did with Jason Jones were hysterical. But, they really happened! This is Jon Stewart at his best; bringing irony and satire. I also liked the ending and how Bahari’s previously imprisoned and long dead father and sister guide him through this horrible experience and grant him the epiphany he needs to survive. What a terrific piece of film making!

YVES SAINT LAURENT – Movie Trailer

June 25, 2014 Posted by suefairview

YVES SAINT LAURENT is a must see for fashion fans, since Yves’ original works are featured in the movie. See this NPR interview for more details.

More information on the movie is here.

Another movie titled SAINT LAURENT stars Gaspard Ulliel. This movie has a better cast, but not the original wardrobe. YVES SAINT LAURENT enjoyed the guidance of Yves’ lover and partner Pierre Berge. YVES SAINT LAURENT opens in theaters this month. SAINT LAURENT does not open until October and there is no trailer available yet, though I will post it as soon as it is available.

From left to right, Gaspard Ulliel, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Niney take on the iconic designer’s pose.
