Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater”: Reviews

Jon Stewart’s debut as a feature director, “Rosewater,” has received a mixed review from Todd McCarthy in THR, which says the flick is capable but lacks urgency. Variety is much kinder, gushing about this project starring Gael Garcia Bernal: ‘The punishing ordeal of Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari — imprisoned for 118 days on charges of espionage — is brought to the screen with impressive tact and intelligence by writer-director Jon Stewart in “Rosewater,” an alternately somber and darkly funny drama that may occupy the same geographic terrain as “Argo”…but in most other respects could hardly be more different.’
