*Holy Spider*

A very good Iranian movie, the first half feels like David Fincher but in Farsi.  It is about a serial killer, so you must be able to tolerate some difficult scenes.  The second half takes some brilliant and creative turns, concerning broader Iranian society.  I dare not divulge those for fear of spoiling the suspense for you.  The movie also bears on the current role of Iran in the Middle East conflict and has a definite Straussian side.  Recommended, for those who can.  On Netflix.
