Ahlat Agaci

Nuri Bilge Ceylan तुर्की, 2018

Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Wild Pear Tree

"Talky", sure—but another word for that might be "literary", and WPT sees Ceylan going further into a world of words with only periodic flourishes of visual mysticism. Our hero is a young man disgusted by the resignation around him, which makes the film like distilling your 20s into 3 hours. It all resorts to a few acts of arthouse literalism that feel cheap—but chiefly because they're alongside such earned wisdom.
