Nima Javidi drew much-deserved praise for his first feature, the chamber drama Melbourne. His second film ups the ante in scale, scope, and ambition without sacrificing the tension and suspense that made his debut so memorable. On the day that a prison is being emptied so it can be demolished to make way for an airport runway, its vain, authoritarian warden (up and coming star Navid Mohammadzadeh) discovers a prisoner is missing. With time running down, the warden struggles to find the fugitive before his superiors discover his mistake. (Dir.: Nima Javidi, Iran, 2019, 100 min., DCP, Persian with English subtitles)
