Persepolis

Finally watched Persepolis. Really enjoyed it. I haven't read anyone's take on it, but if you haven't seen it, do. It's touching and funny, and puts things like "revolution" and "liberation" into perspective without getting too heavy into rhetoric or doctrine. Hey, and a reference Iron Maiden even manages to pop up!

Definitely peep the graphic novels the movie is based on too, they are awesome. Yeah, that was probably the best graphic novel-to-film translation I've ever seen.

Thanks for the tip. Have to add that to the list right after Watchmen.
