Foremost i don't have any direct connection with director , i am just a cinephile who loves worldwide-cinema especially made by well respected director's.
As i had been waiting Zeki Demirkubuz's latest movie Yeraltı , i was a bit upset at the end. In addition to this you can still smell his chaotic vision like previous movies but this time i think he seriously got annoyed to someone and tried to say his "replies" to them via character made by Engin Günaydın.
This can't say i dislike the movie but i think Tales of Darkness trilogy or Kader is better then this or even Masumiyet. You should watch those before coming to Yeraltı i suppose. Like you ought to do with Kim Ki-Duk's movies to understand those kind of extraordinary visioneers outstanding way of looking to the cinema. I can give many examples like Haneke or von Trier even van Sant. Ki-duk is the first one came in because of my obsession on Korean cinema.
Something about Engin Günaydın , i think he was tremendously worked on constructing the character and did a great job , you would agree with me.
Frankly saying that Demirkubuz's legacy should go on , cause real-Turkish cinema audience need that kind of directors which born and raised in our very country. So then we can be more familiar to their drawings on scene not like FreakShow puppet master's works for douchebags , i mean fat-ass comedies.
By the way Zeki Demirkubuz still great , still a priceless director for Turkey.
Please watch and support his great vision , as i do for years...
