More on Iran and 300

More on Iran and 300, not likely to get an Iranian Oscar this year……..

The WT article says: “All Hollywood likes to do is paint us in a bad light,” said a disappointed, middle-aged customer who was looking to buy “300.” “They like to show Iranians in a racist way.”  As uf Iran is a race-neutral paradise!

Another guys says: “We don’t have a problem with history, with the fact that the Greeks beat us at Thermopylae. What we have a problem with is the ways in which the Americans like to show us. We don’t have a problem with the Greeks, but with the American film industry.”

None of Iran’s 250 cinemas is scheduled to show the film. Few foreign films are distributed in local theaters, most of which show an almost exclusive repertoire of lighthearted Iranian comedies and existential, romantic dramas.
