Dear Chas, unfortunately it is extremely hard to find those films especially within international platforms, i could seen only 2 of them ( Uzak-Distant,Ucurtmayi Vurmasinlar-Don't Let Them Shoot The Kite), however i will be able to get them within a year :) and of course if you desire to see them i can send copies of them to you, but i can not promise, mean while please do not think that they are the real top 5 of Turkish Cinema, yes they are selected films but not the real bests, i may recommend you a load of Turkish films as an loyal admirer of Turkish flicks but you know you can not find them and see...

Very interesting. I don't know much about Turkish cinema, but i'm surprised by the absence of Okten (The Herd) and especially Guney (Yol).

Yes right John-5, this top5 list which is announced by the critiques of Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival is very interesting, i was a bit surprised when i have heard this list as you did, because this list does not include the real best films of Turkish cinema, but these are the critiques' choices, i did not see all of them but Uzak ( Diztant) by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, it deserves being on the top5 , frankly i can not say anything about others films but i am absolutely sure that Turkish cinema has far more greater movies than those flicks, in order to learn them please just have a look at my top 10 list on this site and my top20 list at , as for the Herd and Yol , they are good films but not the best examples of Turkish cinema, just internationally and politically famous films of Turkey, but believe me there are many better movies than Yol and Herd, unfortunately it is impossible even for me ( i m a Turk ) to find Turkish films around me, however thanks to Tv channels, i have opportunity to see them on TV, because tv channels broadcast et least 3 Turkish films in a day and 1 famous one on prime-time, Turkish viewers are loyal admirers of melodrama and comedy films produced highly in 1960s-70s, well i am trying to acquire best-known examples of Turkish films as i said before, in near future i will be able to send or trade those films with any one interested...
