    (Talaye Sorgh)
    (2003) Directed by Jafar Panahi

    A dark drama based on a real-life incident, CRIMSON GOLD is director
    Jafar Panahi's superb follow-up to THE CIRCLE (2000). The film begins
    with a robbery gone terribly wrong, and then backs up to patiently
    outline the steps leading to it. Working from a script by his mentor
    Abbas Kiarostami, Panahi employs a dramatic visual style that is both
    dazzling and hard-edged. Together, the two filmmakers have fashioned
    a subtle yet devastating portrait of social inequality and urban
    alienation in contemporary Tehran. They are aided in their task by
    Hussein Emadeddin, an affectingly natural nonprofessional actor, who
    plays the exasperated pizza deliverer driven to violence by hard
    times and despair. Producer/Editor: J. Panahi. Screenwriter: Abbas

    Producer: Jafar Panahi. Screenplay: Abbas Kiarostami.
    Cinematographer: Hossain Jafarian. Editor: Jafar Panahi. Cast:
