Taste of Cherry

Taste of Cherry ★★★★

i think my favorite kiarostamiism is how he shoots people driving in cars from the passenger seat, so you feel like you're in the car with the character, and whenever they stop you see all this activity out the window, and people run to the window and shout things or ask a favor or have a conversation. just as i was thinking this film is more straightforward than many of his others, that ending recalls the last two parts of the koker trilogy and now i'm feeling equal parts conflicted and amazed. he really is such a singular director.
