"Iran Protests 'Persepolis' Screening"

Of course they did.

It's an adaptation of a graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi that depicts the excesses of Iran's theocracy. The Iranian government protested that it "presented an unrealistic face of the achievements and results of the glorious Islamic Revolution in some of its parts." Of course it does.

I've got an idea. Let's show it as a double feature with "Schindler's List." They'd really like that, since the Holocaust was faked and all, according to their leader.

I don't really have anything to remark on this post.

I just wanted to get in on some of the non-word verification action.

If you haven't read Persepolis, you should. It's a great book.

Don't have time at the moment...
It's currently Monday evening and time for "Assyrians on the Move" on the local public access channel.....

Splotchy-
Don't we all... it feels so good!

Lulu-
I've already put it on my short list-- it does sound great. Thanks!

Cheer34-
I think it's a combination of Persia and Metropolis, if that helps.

Elk-
Adam wants to do a public access show based on Waynes World. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Persia and Metropolis? So it's about Iranian Batman?

I love the double feature idea! It is possible that six million Jews and sixteen million Russians could just be making the whole thing up, right?
