"I WANT to do all my own shit, not shit because I have to." - - Ogle B Straight
THE SALESMAN, THE SALESMAN...I agree "The Salesman" probably should have been #5 at best, but here's how good you have to be to make an average American talk about an Iranian artist.
This dude, ASGHAR FARHADI, not only makes an entertaining, suspenseful, expertly acted, nearly flawless film in the universe of all films, he depicts a current-time movie about Iranian stage actors performing Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman". What a beautiful concept! Solely Iranian, too. I can't imagine an American conceiving a story about Iranian's performing classic American playwrights...as the basic setting. Then, ADDING all of this brilliant drama.
