2000's of Turkish Cinema by Ekşi Sinema

Her ülke sinemasının halen yazılmakta olan bir hikayesi vardır. Bizimkinin de öyle… Bizim hikayemizi bol dönemeçli ve trajikomik bir drama benzetebiliriz. Yazılan bu hikayenin bizim rast geldiğimiz, yakından takip edebildiğimiz son dönemlerinde olan bitenler ise gelecek için umut vaat ediyor. Filmlerimiz yüksek prestijli uluslararası festivallerden ödüllerle dönüyor; Türkiye sineması her yerde daha fazla ciddiye alınmaya başlanıyor. Türkiye sinemasının 2000′li yıllarında karşımıza çıkan 60 tane ‘olmazsa olmaz’ filmi tek bir listede derledik. Biraz daha ileri gidip bu listenin bir “2000′ler Türkiye Sineması Kullanma Kılavuzu” olduğunu dahi söyleyebiliriz. (Kaan Karsan)
