Dependable Erection

Monday, March 03, 2008


I'm pretty sure none of you come here for the movie reviews, but you really owe it to yourself to go see Persepolis while you can.

It's a funny, moving, wise, and ultimately human coming of age story whose cultural touchstones unexpectedly resonate with our own. That the resonance is unexpected is significant, i think, but i'll let you judge that for yourself. The scene where Marjane sneaks through the back streets of Teheran trying to score a bootleg Iron Maiden cassette is especially hilarious. It's on trailer 2 at Rotten Tomatoes.
Persepolis is at the Chelsea on Weaver Dairy Rd. for a few more days. After that, you'll probably have to wait for the DVD.
