@Jook I'm sure your opinion is grounded, but how exactly was Persepolis pretentious? :O Sure, artsy moments like color switching, etc., but it all served a purpose, which is the exact opposite of pretentiousness.

A politically-charged tearjerker that gets to the bottom of things -- including the role of women in even more patriarchal societies than ours. It's a shame that they don't make more movies like this.

Fucking fantastic movie. I was actually kind of blown away by how much I love it. The art is beautiful, the story is fantastic, the dialogue is great, the characters are all memorable and distinct and it's an emotional roller coaster. Thoroughly captivating. I can't promote this movie enough, watch it.

Painful story told beautifully. A flawed human, living in a flawed world, but aren’t we all in the same boat? The only thing left to do is to be honest with ourselves. Amazing.

@ everyone disagreeing with Jook; I think it's less that the film itself is pretentious than that it's about a pretentious person. Marjane is pretty honest throughout about presenting her faults, and BOY does she have fucking faults. On a minuscule level, her initial love of then dismissal of the Bee-Gees demonstrates her behavior towards pretty much every element of her life: embrace passionately, then reject passionately. It's a movie about adolescence in an extremely difficult environment, and that experience colors the tone of the movie; a very average person giving themself too much credit for developing in a very uncommon, stressful situation.

Pretentious? No way. But, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
