3 Monkeys Üç maymun /Three Monkeys (Nuri Bilge Ceylan, 2008)
This is a powerful film on many fronts. The screenplay, written by Ceylan and his wife, is wonderful. Ercan Kesal, who plays the politician, is a doctor in real life and friend who also collaborated on the script. The characters are hard. Very real. Gökhan Tiryaki's cinematography is phenomenal. Every shot constructed and framed just so. The color tone of the film stock helps to set the stage and emotion. As the characters fall into a life based on lies and swindling; their mental, physical and emotional states crumble. We see this acted out and portrayed on the screen.
