Iranian Filmmaker: 'Michael Moore Is the Most Famous Director in Iran'

According to one of Iran's most acclaimed directors, anti-American schlockumentarian Michael Moore is the most famous filmmaker in that Middle Eastern nation that so happens to be a sworn enemy of the United States.

As the New York Post reported Thursday:

At a screening of Asghar Farhadi’s critically lauded “A Separation” at Sony’s screening room, the Iranian director spotted the “Fahrenheit 9/11” filmmaker in the audience. Farhadi quipped, “Michael Moore is the most famous director in Iran,” and said everyone knows his movies because they’re shown on national TV there.

Although Moore didn't respond to requests for comment, one quite imagines he wears this like a badge of honor.
