Dir. Nuri Bilge Ceylan (2011).
Turkey’s finest filmmaker has made his finest movie to date. Runner-up to The Tree of Life at Cannes, Ceylan’s bleakly comic, superbly crafted, highly rigorous epistemological treatment of a police investigation conducted in the dark emptiness of the Anatolian night confirms its maker’s international status.
