Abbas Kiarostami: The Filmspotting Reviews
Collected here, reviews for the four Abbas Kiarostami films we've discussed on the show over the years. Our first was back in 2009, when then co-host Matty Robinson and Adam took a look at Kiarmostami’s A TASTE OF CHERRY as part of our Cannes Film Fest Winners marathon. Tasha Robinson, friend of the show and current co-host at The Next Picture Show, joined Adam for a review of CERTIFIED COPY in 2011. Then in 2012, Josh and Adam included 1990’s CLOSE UP in their Contemporary Iranian Cinema marathon. And finally, a review of Kiarostami’s final film, LIKE SOMEBODY IN LOVE from 2012. To hear Adam's conversation with film writer Tina Hassannia about the director’s legacy, which he recorded just days after learning of Kiarostami's passing, you can find that in episode 593.
