A Separation star Payman Maadi plays a detective determined to nab a notorious drug kingpin in a caper that dominated Iran’s box office and won the audience award at the Fajr Film Festival in Tehran. It’s easy to see why: from its fast-paced opening scenes, in which addicts are rounded up for arrest, to its devastating finale, Just 6.5 is a nonstop thrill ride with a sincere social message at its heart. “More than a thrilling watch. It is a sobering reflection on the inability of the law to stem the tide of drug addiction through round-ups, arrests and executions” (Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter). (Dir.: Saeed Roustayi, Iran, 2019, 135 min., DCP, Persian with English subtitles)
