Proto-Fascist glorification of death and humiliation of life
11 June 1999 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a man so badly brainwashed by religious fascism that can not appreciate love and life. The title, translated into Farsi, means: "the tower to Paradise" .The tower, is a watch-tower, where the believers,(the background is the Iran-Iraque War) who are presumably the Islamic revolutionary guards, are being martyred and shipped to Paradise.If this sounds like a farce to an average movie-goer, it sounds like a holy and admirable undertaking to the director, who is indulged in the mysticism of "the Holy War" .A talented filmmaker, the messenger of death-wish.
