My review of The Salesman, for The Tulsa Voice. This intense Iranian domestic drama recently won the 2016 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Two-time Oscar winning director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) once again explores marital strife through a violent inciting incident, but this time he contrasts the events of his story against a production of “Death of a Salesman”, all in a critique of Iranian masculinity.
