Turkish prison. The term refers directly to a terrible hell, where souls are wiped out, contradicted each individual right is lost and the last drop of hope. The correlation is not a coincidence. Especially after 1978 when the film of Alan Parker, the belief is reflected in the eyes of the civilized world.

" The Untruth: SPOILERS. Billy Hayes (Brad Davis) is incarcerated in a hellish Turkish prison. He makes his escape after killing the most brutal of the guards by ramming a coat hook through his skull. The Truth: Hayes actually escaped by going for a bit of a swim. The script is by Oliver Stone. He's been known to exaggerate a bit. See: The Doors, JFK, Alexander, Born On The Fourth Of July and EVERYTHING HE’S EVER DONE ABOUT AN ACTUAL PERSON. We're only joking Oliver, we love you real"

"Me hubiera gustado más si el protagonista se hubiera enfrentado solo a todas las vicisitudes propias de un pez fuera del agua. Sería interesante verlo sin los aliados de habla inglesa. "

"DVD Kosto ja rangaistuslaitos tekevät harmittomistakin tyypeistä sekopäitä ja turkkilainen vankila ei vierailukohteena tämänkään jälkeen kiinnosta. Leffan vasikka näyttää muuten ihan Suomen grillit kebabit -kiskan kokilta. Voimakas filmatisointi. "Mhut shiis eikö thämä elokuva ole vähän rhasishtinen?""

“Turkish prison. The term refers directly to a terrible hell, where souls are wiped out, contradicted each individual right is lost and the last drop of hope. The correlation is not a coincidence. Especially after 1978 when the film of Alan Parker, the belief is reflected in the eyes of the civilized world. The scenario may be based on a true recording history, but the opposite-affected-side blamed the director and scriptwriter for the textures of film propaganda.

The film is a true child of the writer Oliver Stone, who has added to that all the elements of his own film technique: Always provocatively sided and accusatory, the Stone has a history of mutation-autobiography of Billy Hayes, having distorted many of the writings of in an effort to emotional overload of the public.
