Incarceration, especially solitary confinement, is not that interesting to watch. In the film Rosewater, the film finds a way to draw us into the cell of Maziar Bakari during his 2009 detention in Iran. A bizarre story, it is amazing to me that hundreds of journalists have suffered the same fate in Iran and the middle east. The storytelling technique is powerful, subtle and effective. Makes for a compelling film. Well done.
