The Warden
First screened in February 2020
Director: Nima Javidi. Cast: Navid Mohammedzadeh, Parinaz Izadyar, Mani Haghighi, Ismaeel Pourreza, Amir Keyvan Masoumi, Habib Rezaei, Ali Mardaneh, Setareh Pesyani. Screenplay: Nima Javidi.

Twitter Capsule: Mohammedzadeh's such a fine actor that tracking-down mid-level efforts is worth it. Twists uneven. Camera pretty flat.

VOR:   Competent execution of a potboiler script, but not necessarily made to linger. Feels underfunded, which is not rare for today's Iranian films.
