A Treatise on Human Condition
Taboor, according to ancient legend, refers to a point at the centre of the earth where cleansed human spirits gather. Fans of narrative driven cinema are advised to stay away from this film. However, if you like works of Tarkovsky, early Lynch, Kubrick of 2001 A Space Odyssey, Resnais, to name a few, then you will find a film to savour. Taboor is devoid of any coherent story or even dialogue (save for a few voice overs). It is composed of a series of long shots emphasizing the significance of time and how time stands still at times. It is also a statement on human condition, who controls our destiny and the sadomasochistic nature of some forms of human relationship. Taboor is a film which requires the viewers patience and total absorption in the environment created in the movie. The director Vakilifar is a visionary artist whose films are not made to capture box office but will be a source of enjoyment and contemplation by cinephiles.
