Twitter Capsule: Formally stunning mitosis of one suspense thriller into two, enigmatically related. Two parts Audiard, one Don't Look Now.

VOR:   Daring portrait of Turkey at an especially tense and paranoid moment in its history. Takes huge risks with narrative chronology, perspective, and structure.
