Inspired by Ian Olds' 2009 documentary "Fixer: The Taking of Ajmal Naqshbandi," which explored the 2007 kidnapping of one of Afghanistan's best "fixers" - individuals hired by foreign journalists to facilitate, translate and gain access for their stories. It follows Osman, an Afghan journalist exiled from his war-torn country to a small bohemian community in Northern California. When he attempts to turn his menial job on the local police blotter into "Afghan-style" coverage of local crime, he gets drawn into the backwoods of this small town - a shadow Northern California where sex is casual, true friendship is hard to come by and an unfamiliar form of violence lurks all around.

reviews
A well-acted, slow burning indie, The Fixer uses thriller mechanisms to examine insular, tribal cultures through the eyes of an outsider.
14d ago
Burn Country builds off a true story, finding a strong message but weak drama.
14d ago
The performances are first rate, particularly Rains’ work in the lead role.
14d ago
70/100
An Afghan refugee discovers No. Cal. redwood country has its own perils in "The Fixer."
14d ago
Mr. Rains, Ms. Leo and Mr. Franco are all so interesting that you wish they had more to bite into. But the film has a transfixing quality nonetheless.
14d ago
Dominic Rains plays an Afghan journalist trying to make sense of a small California town.
