Turkey (2002) Dir: Nuri Bilge Ceylan. Superlatives are warranted for this Turkish arthouse drama which is filled with a palpable sense of loss and yearning. Written, produced, photographed, edited, and directed by Ceylan, it’s the story of an unemployed young man from the countryside who comes to a wintry, present-day Istanbul in search of work on the ships. He stays with his divorced cousin, a successful yet cynical photographer, who’s soon irritated at having his solitary routine disrupted by the presence of his rural relative. Turkish with English subtitles. Unrated. 110 mins.
