2018 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 6 – Jafar Panahi’s Three Faces

Winner for the Camera d’Or in 1995 (Directors’ Fortnight) for The White Balloon, winner of the Un Certain Regard Jury for Crimson Gold in 2003 (my favorite of his), its almost hard to fathom that Three Faces counts as Jafar Panahi‘s first time in Competition — which was especially disappointing since the filmmaker was one of two folks who was banned from traveling to the fest.

Encouraged by the progressive freedom of choice and feminist texts in Cannes this year by way of Jia Zhangke & now this film, this is currently sitting tied for the 2nd top score (14 critics out of 20) with a 3.3.
