A meticulously crafted slow-burning psychological thriller chronicling the idle time spent by a disgruntled ship crew following the shipping company’s bankruptcy. Trapped on a cargo ship for months at sea, the captain struggles to maintain the status quo, and relationships between indignant crew members become too tense to bare. Gökhan Tiryaki’s beautifully stark photography (director Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s resident cinematrographer), Nadir Sarıbacak’s (Winter Sleep, Wrong Rosary) tour de force performance will blow you away in Karaçelik’s homage to life at sea.

This feature-length documentary by filmbuff turned filmmaker Cem Kaya, that chronicles the zeitgeist of the most prolific (and bizarre!) era of Yesilcam (or Turkish Hollywood, for the lack of a better phrase), that ‘sweet-spot’ in the 70s when Turkishfilmmakers had to resort to mind-boggling tactics to satisfy the endless demands of the domestic movie-going audience. Miniscule budgets and tight schedules meant the filmmakers of the time had to devise a formula that worked every time – remaking, remixing and ripping off universally acclaimed films like Superman, E.T., The Exorcist, Rambo, James Bond and of course Star Wars, all a la Turca, of course!

See the movie that inspired George Lucas’s original Star Wars. Toshiro Mifune stars as a general charged with guarding his defeated clan’s princess (a fierce Misa Uehara) as the two smuggle royal treasure across hostile territory. Accompanying them are a pair of bumbling, conniving peasants who may or may not be their friends. This rip-roaring ride is among the director’s most beloved films, delivering Kurosawa’s trademark deft blend of wry humor, breathtaking action, and compassionate humanity. 35mm print.
