Close Up (1990)

It's been a while since I watched an Iranian film, the last I remember was the acclaimed "A Separation" back in 2011. So I did not know how to get back into it or what to actually expect. I remember how Iranian movies would perfect the art of slow movies which revolve around people and emotions rather than events and action. That is exactly what I got when I was watching Close Up. The film is the definition of the word emotion and feeling. Because if you don't focus and really pay attention, this film would seem pointless and uneventful. Let me then get into my thoughts on the film and how I feel about it a week after watching it.
