Bahrani continues with his highly successful less-is-more approach to filmmaking, using authentic locations and non-professional actors to portray and comment on the lives of those on the margins of American society. His latest effort is an evocative and eventually transcendent depiction of a relationship between an elderly white Southerner (West) and a Senegalese taxi driver (Souleymane).
