ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA
Synopsis: A suspect has confessed to murder. All that remains is for him to take the police to the victim’s body. This journey begins a long odyssey across the rolling countryside as it becomes clear that the confessed killer can’t remember where he left the dead body. As we watch the detectives unravel this seemingly simple case, small clues come into focus, hinting at widespread corruption in the police force and possibly something much more sinister. The latest film from Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan, ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA is a slow-burning and far from routine police procedural. Ceylan uses expansive cinematic space to draw the audience into the film’s tightly focused thesis. For cinephiles who love piecing together difficult puzzle films, this labyrinthine tale will prove one of the most challenging delights of the year.
