This is London

This is the best controlled film of this major director - even one of the best films of the past year.

The Skinny

The climactic hour is a deflating slog that fails to build upon what went before.

Ceylan has planted the murder genre in a new and reflective spot.

A subtitled film full of mystery and dark tension.

The performances are as impeccable as Gokhan Tiryaki's cinematography, but it's Ceylan's mastery of composition and pacing that makes this so visually striking and dramatically compelling.

Daily Telegraph

Intrigues almost more in retrospect than it does when you're watching it, as enigmas and emotions around the case are teased out, and the oblique power of a remarkable ending sneaks up and stuns you.

If you're in a hurry, don't go near this film. If you're not in a hurry, don't go anywhere else. It could change your life.

Ceylan displays pure, exhilarating mastery in this film: it is made with such confidence and flair.

Little White Lies

Ceylan has forged a new template for the police procedural.

Anton Bitel

Ceylan dramatises how his characters - and we along with them - are never really seeing the full picture but rather merely glimpsing fragments of narrative through the shifting moonlight, village blackouts and lightning flashes.

Beautifully shot and superbly directed, this is a haunting, contemplative Turkish drama that transcends its lengthy running time thanks to strong performances, a thought-provoking script and some stunning visuals.

Ceylan's visual style is less heightened, more down-to-earth than the more stylised 'Three Monkeys', but still some of the night-time scenes look like careful paintings, such is the precision of their lighting and composition.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A Film of Ideas about morality and truth... accrues to itself a powerful atmosphere of chaos giving way to order.

Complex and sophisticated, this genre-defying crime story is spellbinding viewing.

Mannered, deliberate film (some might say SLOW) that somehow gains accumulated power through its director's incredible eye for composition and appreciation for the beauty of cinema.

Ceylan doesn't slap us with big dramatic moments, but allows us to live along with his characters as things occur to them.

It is epic in its aims and achievements yet modest in its resources: some superb actors, stunning landscapes and a resonant, understated script.

Total Film

Closer in metaphysical spirit to Kiarostami than to Leone, it lingers thanks to beautifully lit widescreen images of lived-in faces and barren, beautiful landscapes.

Stories are told, told again later, embellished. Slowly but surely, each of the characters becomes three dimensional and early impressions change and change again.
