One of the Greatest Movies Ever Made
Prior to seeing this excellent film, I had already read the books several times over, so I had very high expectations. This autobiopic is something else entirely, an intriguing examination of human nature in the midst of chaos. I remember hearing a story about how the director of Battleship Potemkin said that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the greatest movie ever made just after seeing it, and I was tempted to say the same about Persepolis, because animation renders limitless possibilities and engrosses the viewer in the characters. Even if you're not a fan of animation, you must see this for the excruciatingly realistic social commentary and the great character drama.
