Reviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 11/22] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Il film si apre su una finestra opaca. E’ notte. Si intravvedono tre uomini, che bevono assieme. Sembrano amici. Di lì a poco però uno dei tre sarà morto, un’altro reo confesso del delitto, il terzo testimone dei fatti.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
  • Cynthia Fuchs @ PopMatters
  • Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row
    • Excerpt: Much like the film it features, Cinema Guild’s blu-ray release of Once Upon a Time in Anatolia is thoughtful and complex, a comprehensive collection of features that enhance the film rather than simply take up space on a disc.
  • Bev Questad @ It’s Just Movies
    • Excerpt: The acting is tremendous, the cinematography in the dark is skillful and the last half hour is what indie and foreign film-goers crave – a film that functions on a few different levels of meaning with the maximum requisite for intellectual mulling.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s “Once Upon a Time in Anatolia” is an incomparable cinematic endeavor. It’s a police drama, but it’s also a travelogue and an existential parable.
