Those who get out alive will eventually regret it
6 October 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Maybe I'll come back someday and digress on the politics of this film, but I would just like to hail it for some fine, fine acting. It's long, but I doubt anyone could say the atmospheric shots were overdone, and few frames were wasted--they almost all reflect on something else in the film. It's like a very long, slow, convulsion, if that makes any sense.

If you, like me, were disappointed by the manipulative, false, Academy award-winning _A Separation_, then restore your sense of probity with _Manuscripts Don't Burn_. I also can't believe the director hadn't had Shelley from _Glengarry Glen Ross_ in mind as he drew the protagonist here, but, if he didn't, it probably only makes both films more real and remarks an essential cultural and human sameness at play. (Both movies, don't forget, are based on real-life situations.)
