In the top-grossing Iranian megahit Just 6.5, a tough narcotics officer (Payman Maadi) is hell-bent on catching a drug lord (Navid Mohammadzadeh) and uses questionable tactics to capture the criminal. The title of this thrilling action drama refers to the number—6.5 million—of drug-using Iranians, and the film’s underlying tension reveals that the police and criminal-justice system have little effect on curtailing the problem. Fast-paced storytelling, captivating performances, and slick cinematography add to the allure. Just 6.5 won the Audience Award at Iran’s national film festival.
