27th Houston Iranian Film Festival: Just 6.5

27th Houston Iranian Film Festival: Just 6.5

Presented by Museum of Fine Arts, Houston at Museum of Fine Arts Houston - Brown Auditorium

In this top-grossing Iranian megahit, a tough narcotics officer (Payman Maadi) is hell-bent on catching a drug lord (Navid Mohammadzadeh), and his team uses questionable tactics to capture him. The tense action drama’s title refers to the number (6.5 million) of drug-using Iranians, and the film’s underlying tension reveals that the police and criminal justice system have little effect on curtailing the problem. Fast-paced storytelling, captivating performances, and slick cinematography add to the allure of this Audience Award winner at Iran’s national film festival.
