The Daily Show's Jon Stewart nails his directorial debut with the non-fictional account of Maziar Bahari's 2009 imprisonment in Iran. The story is personal to Stewart because the Iranian police used Bahari's appearance on The Daily Show as evidence he was an American spy. A very powerful examination of the the story that balances political earnestness with bleak governmental truth in unsubtle, yet haunting ways.
