A yellow cab makes its way through the vibrant and colorful streets of Tehran. Diverse passengers enter the car, candidly expressing their views as they are interviewed by the driver. Jafar Panahi's camera, placed on the dashboard of his mobile film studio, captures a portrait of Iranian society.

What are critics saying?


Screen International by Dan Fainaru

This is a delightful surprise, and though it is even more minimalistic than his last two illegal exports, This Is Not A film and Closed Curtains, it is also more mature, and better calibrated and - at the risk of annoying art house patrons who often hate this term - more entertaining than the other two.


The Hollywood Reporter by Deborah Young

Amazingly, Panahi turns the utterly simple, economical format of a camera inside a car into something relevant to his own artistic state and full of eye-opening insights into Iranian society.


CineVue by Ed Frankl

At 82 minutes, this is a brisk but hugely powerful work that is cinema of the oppressed par excellence.


New York Post by Farran Smith Nehme

Often extremely funny, always thoughtful, the movie transcends its static nature to become a deeper picture of modern Iran than any news story could offer.


Slant Magazine by Jake Cole

Jafar Panahi spotlights the act of filmmaking as an act of resistance as well as a possible source of propaganda and manipulation.


The Playlist by Jessica Kiang

An insightful, enjoyable, absorbing ride that stands as a testament to its director's lively, ungovernable storytelling imagination.


The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

Taxi grew on me. It is not as angry and painful as his previous work, the samizdat This Is Not a Film, but it is subtle, humorous and humane. It tells you more about modern Iran, I think, than you’ll discover on the news.
