You said it, sister

Holy Spider (2022: d. Ali Abbasi)

Been really looking forward to this one, and it did not disappoint. It’s about Saeed Hanaei, the notorious Iranian serial killer who killed prostitutes in the holy city of Mashhad. Yeah, not so holy, you hypocrites. Zar Amir-Ebrahimi plays the journalist who has come to Mashhad to investigate the crimes. She runs up against obfuscation and lies at every turn. After all, this killer is cleaning up the streets. These women are worse than worthless. They’re not even human. He’s doing everyone a good turn. He became a little celebrity. Played by Mehdi Bajestani in a very disturbing performance. Very good movie.
