Nuri Bilge Ceylan is a big name in Turkish cinema. Hoovering up awards like they’re going out of fashion, his trail of brainy auterism can be traced back through two decades of European art cinema. Most recently, his cerebral “Once Upon A Time in Anatolia," a broodingly philosophical account of the search for a dead body (think “Stand By Me” for grown-ups), was met with awe, gaining a foothold in the global consciousness with a Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival, which it shared with the Dardennes' “The Kid with a Bike.”
