    • Excerpt: [Farhadi] begins with a bang, his extended family wedding one of the most cinematically significant in some time, but oddly, his film suffers diminishing returns as skeletons start to tumble out of closets.

    • Excerpt: This production just might be director Asghar Farhadi’s most accessible creation.

    • Excerpt: Asghar Farhadi attempts to meld melodramatic mystery with his usual humanistic drama, but leaves little space for either impulse to be satisfied. Disappointing and strangely anticlimactic.
  • [New] | Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: Because the rural Spanish setting and the characters who inhabit it are so vividly realized, it’s a little jolting to discover that Everybody Knows is written and directed by two-time Iranian Oscar-winner Asghar Farhadi. His previous movies like The Past, A Separation and The Salesman featured pointed comments on being an Iranian exile or on the challenges of living in contemporary Tehran.
