A Poor and Racist Movie...

As a Turkish citizen I came to the US this year to study. After several persons asked me about this movie, I decided to watch it. I am not a nationalist at all. I have never been proud (or ashamed) of being a Turkish as i wouldn't be proud (or ashamed) of being a member of another nationality.

It would be absurd to deny that there was and is torture in many prisons in Turkey, especially to political prisoners. Justice system is not perfect either.

Yet, i have been very disturbed by this movie. It is full of racism and hatred. At one point, the actor speaks of Turks as a nation of pigs. All the Turkish people in the movie are portrayed as ugly evils.

Some reviewers say that if you forget about the propaganda, it is a good movie. Other than the acting by the main character, i didn't see what makes this movie a good one. The screenplay is very simplistic and unrealistic. Simple good against simple bad. Nothing about the complexities of human nature or social life. It is unbelievable that this movie has won so many awards. And it is a shame that such big names as Oliver Stone and Alan Parker have their signatures on this crap.

A good movie but keep in mind a near total fantasy.

I can't for the life of me, understand those that think the idiocy, the blatant racism, the retarded angle with which A WHOLE NATION OF 70 MILLION PEOPLE! are portrayed as subhuman pigs in this film would have anything to do with being "artistic" or "true story" etc... Turkey takes millions of tourists every year, that go there on their own free will, again and again, millions and millions of western tourists for chrissakes! How in the world could this dumb movie have anything to do with reality?! It is just simply amazing and telling of our times that this racist filth is taken seriously and rated so high to boot! Well done idiots!
