Apple TV+’s new spy thriller, the Israeli but Iran-set TEHRAN, is as much about the human cost of espionage as it is about the thrills of infiltration. The production is teeming with humanity with the many urbanscapes particularly compelling in their persuasiveness. With its heart on its sleeve, TEHERAN’ is a better tragedy than it is a thriller–and perhaps intended that way.
Apple has struck the motherlode with TEHRAN, an irresistibly tense conspiracy thriller from Moshe Zonder, one of the brightest talents in the New Wave of Israeli cinema.
I’m giving TEHERAN a big thumbs up!
