Another Educated and Cultured Monarchist Kills Himself ...

by Darius Kadivar on

He was a prolific film critic who had met and interviewed some of the greatest film directors of Hollywood and European Cinema ranging from Alfred Hitchcock to François Truffaut. I believe he also wrote and worked with Fereidoun Hoveyda at the French Cahiers du Cinema where some of his articles were translated in French.  He was accused of being a Monarchist and having contacts with Shahzadeh Reza Pahlavi during trips to Europe. He was condemned to prison for several years on an on and off basis. Truly a sad end for such a prolific film critic and journalist who had contributed so much to the World of Arts and Cinema in particular. Shame on the Islamic Republic and it's so called "Cultural" dialogue. A Dialogue of Murder that is all this wretched Republic and those who try to safeguard it's constitution have managed to bring to this otherwise great nation and great people who deserve better than this self inflicted permanent humiliation. A Restoration to Oust these Clowns is long due and something tells me that is ultimately what will happen. And the Day it does those who brought so much misery to countless families will be held accountable for misleading this nation to it's abyss.

No to Revenge But Yes to Apologies ! They are long due ...
