CRIMSON GOLD does not pander to Western tastes. It doesn’t feature gory violence or long stretches of abusive language. In fact, the arc of Hussein’s life is shown in a kind of rage-free, slow motion replay that is much more captivating than the shootings we know it has fostered.
CRIMSON GOLD exposes the cruelties and inequities of a society sharply polarized by class and corrupted by selfishness, snobbery and cynicism. But the occasional obviousness of the film’s themes is more than balanced by the subtlety of its methods and by the stolid, irreducible individuality of its protagonist Hussein.
