Three Worlds Reviewed by Arthouse Cinema Site Pinnland Empire

Pinnland Empire reviews Amir Motlagh’s latest feature film, Three Worlds. A great review and primer with no spoilers. The film is available now on multiple platforms with many more coming soon. Mirs provided a cut for the soundtrack. Read the film review by clicking here:

Los Angeles is a strange place with its own unique set of rules (much like any popular city). Filmmaker Amir Motlagh taps into this with his latest feature; Three Worlds - a story that mixes semi-personal journal entries with the existential drama found in the works of Terrence Malick or even Shane Curruth (Upstream Color to be specific). This is also an important film about cultural pride and the impact of therapy.....

And putting all Mekas/Malick comparisons aside, this is very much Motlagh’s own film. The movie is filled with obvious autobiographical content that comes off as genuine & organic as opposed to pretentious. That’s not an easy task with a film like this (ambient, sprawling, artistic and sometimes chaotic). A young filmmaker could easily get self-absorbed & pretentious with a movie like Three Worlds but that’s not the case here.

Press Quotes:

"It's rare to mix rawness with beauty" - Marcus Pinn PINNLAND EMPIRE / ZEBRAS IN AMERICA

"It's always exciting whenever a distinct new voice makes itself heard on the indie landscape. Amir Motlagh is such a voice...."Honest and soulful" - Adam Schartoff FILMWAX RADIO

“There is without a doubt a definitive boldness to “Three Worlds”, both in its tone and aspirations, and it will certainly require viewers to lean in a little closer, which is never a bad thing…..a curious and
fascinating watch.” - David Fowlie KEEPING IT REEL

The experience of both films (MAN + Three Worlds) is one that any film connoisseur must have. To sit with an awareness of the film, and, an awareness of how you are watching it, is a surreal act that can only be described as “art.” Motlagh’s work is definitely a piece of art in the medium of film.” - Jonita Davis THE IRANIAN

Rest in Peace Christopher Ad. Castillo

Chris was a dear friend of ours. In fact, it was an off the cuff remark from him that created the MIRS name. Aside from this first love, cinema, he equally loved music and discovering new bands. He was a staple of the early Las Vegas punk scene and the LA punk scenes of the 80's. 

He passed away right after wrapping principal photography of his new film in the Philippines.

You will be missed friend.
