Cinema from the Shah's Iran has been something I've wanted to explore for a long time. But the movies are incredibly rare and never with subtitles.

But ... you can find stuff on Youtube. Here's a trailer for a movie called UNVEILLED that features brief nudity!

http://youtu.be/pv1TuX6YxMY

Looks like fairly wild stuff at points. Almost like Lollywood or the lowest depths of Bolly.

And here's a post I did at Worldweird Cinema of a list of possibly psychotronic Iranian films:

There's more on the way. I've been sifting through that guy's videos, he has a ton of trailers for EXTREMELY rare Iranian films. Some of them look really, really cool.
Watch this space!
