The result is not merely a document against the military government of Turkey. It is an intensely human story of three lives entangled in tradition and vengeance.
Güney is a firebrand of his country's intellectual left. His films -- slow, ruminative, defiantly indigenous -- smolder with an ideologue's indignation and a poet's ironic compassion.
The film's poetry, its combination of sound and image especially, has an unconscious innocence no longer available to most European and American narratives.
A film whose political and ethnic concerns are likely to be equated -- wrongly -- with cinematic achievement.
Each time a sequence approaches cinematic life, it's flattened by the appearance of a thesis.
Yol is an ambitious movie, but a curiously slick and distant one.
A visually intense examination of Turkish mores and customs.
Anger and sadness lie at the heart of this treatise on the perpetuation of the patriarchal prejudices underpinning Turkish society.
Güney's sympathy for his protagonists is what makes it bearable to watch.
