Then They Came for Me: 118 Days in Iran's Most Notorious Prison. Maziar Bahari, Aimee Molloy - Maziar Bahari

Rosewater is an eye-opening movie about the real life Newsweek journalist who was imprisoned for 118 days in an Iranian prison for his accurate reporting and filming of the riots post-election in 2009. This movie is the reason why Jon Stewart took three months off last year from The Daily Show - Stewart wrote the screen play and directed the movie, which he based off Bahari;s book (linked). I am waiting until after graduation to read the book, but the movie was so powerful, I wanted to recommend it to everyone; hence, I am breaking my own rule about reviewing anything other than books here on BL.
