Critic Reviews for Uzak (Distant)
Deeply compassionate and frequently amusing, qualifying as a minor miracle of humanely observant filmmaking.
The film's extraordinary shifts from windswept sorrow ... to deadpan comedy ... are uniquely, triumphantly their maker's own.
Ultimately, it becomes a movie about the feeling of being alive, the sensation of existence. It's a movie, in a way, about everything.
Straightforward, droll, brutally honest and arresting, if somewhat stately in progress.
Audience Reviews for Uzak (Distant)
a great portrait of urban alienation and destruction of the family. with wonderful photography
I guess I rather watch slices of cake than slices of life. Hitchcock was always right. Why is that some filmmakers think they are giving us profound, meaningful messages through flat out nothingness?
An interesting if not totally fulfilling introduction to Turkish cinema.
