'A fascinating piece of work which brings the insights of Continental philosophy to bear on Iranian cinema and—perhaps more importantly—brings Iranian cinema to bear on those insights.' - Simon Critchley, Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy, New School for Social Research
'Erfani's important and informative book makes a stunning contribution to the relatively new field of film and philosophy. In it, Iranian cinema and western philosophy peer into each other like facing mirrors, finding there both confirmation and disorientation. Lucid and sophisticated, this work will have wide appeal to those interested in cinema and contemporary theory.' - Joan Copjec, professor of English, Comparative Literature, and Media Study, University at Buffalo
