    One of the best films ever made, Midnight Express, by Alan Parker 1978.
    Based on a true story of Billy Hayes getting caught up in the turkish system. Billy is played by Brad Davis and John Hurt is co-starring.

    A great movie indeed, one of the most hard movies aswell...i heard that Turkey was greatly annoyed by the (true) represantation of their law and jail system...the movie had a crazy impact on tourism there..and yet..20so years after Turkey is still reported of great brutality and violation of human rights on their prisons...

    This torturing technique is called 'falaga' (no translation available)
    after you're tied upside down, they beat the shit out of your feet, according to chinese medicine all the nerves of the body end on your feet, each section of your feet are suposed to be connected with a part of your body...its said that after the first beatings the pain hits directly on the brain.

    I'm trying to remember if I saw this or not. It sounds so familiar...but I just can't remember. Guess I'll put it on the list.

    I saw this about 5 years ago around midnight.
    Left me with a very dark feeling despite the ending.
    perhaps i shall watch it again.

    I dislike how other movies ripped off the idea
    *Brokedown Palace with Claire Danes...
    *another one with Vince Vaughn and Anne Heche...i forget the name.
    Basically same kind thing
