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

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"
