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... read more

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2014 (504 movies items)

"23.10 Tälle pitänee tulevaisuudessa suoda uusintakatselu, kovin äkkiä sen en usko koittavan, sillä nykyisellääkin elokuva pölyttyi hyllyssä kolmisen vuotta. Vankilapakoleffoja on toki parempiakin nähty, tässä paneudutaan itse paon sijasta henkilöihin, joita etenkin John Hurt ja Randy Quaid hienosti tulkitsevat. Suurta elokuvallista elämystä tämä ei nyt tarjonnut, mutta kuten sanottu uusintakatselu tälle suodaan."

25 From 78: My Favorite Films Of 1978 (25 movies items)

"For me, Midnight Express is the film that explicitly revealed why the term "turkish prison" is always equated with hope-abandoned fear. And as a result, mercilessly dashed my dreams of ever entering the field of drug muleology*. *And if you don't know what that word means, don't bother looking it up. I made it up. Instead, go find yourself some quality Turkish hash, smoke it, and then reread that sentence. I guarantee you, it'll make a whole more sense then. And if not, don't worry about it."

Almost a complete review of Oliver Stone's work (23 movies items)

"It was actually directed by Alan Parker, Oliver Stone wrote the screenplay. Back then, Stone was still struggling as a director but he did manage to reach some major critical acclaim for writing this, winning his first Academy award in the process. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of this flick. I mean, it has been a while since I have seen it but back then, I thought it was rather stereotypical and way over the top. Still, the first scene, until the guy gets caught at the airport, is really amazi"
