Patient, tonally complex dialogues reveal character but avoid histrionics. Images more beautiful than interesting.
Most viewers seem to prefer Anatolia, but the Palme, the runtime, and Ceylan's accumulated reputation have made this a prodigious litmus as weighty intro or major crux to important auteur's career.
