It is based on Billy Hayes' 1977 non-fiction book Midnight Express and was cxst into the screenplay by Oliver Stone.Hayes was a young American student sent to a Turkish prison for trying to smuggle hashish out of Turkey. The film deviates from the midmight accounts of the story�� especially in its portrayal of Turks�� and some have criticized this version, including Billy Hayes himself.

While attempting to board a plane back to the United States with his girlfriend, Billy is arrested by Turkish police on high alert due to fear of terrorist attacks.

He is strip-searched, photographed and questioned. After a while, a shadowy American (who is never named, but is nicknamed "Tex" by Billy due midnight express cast imdb his thick Texan accent) arrives, takes Billy to a police station and translates for Billy for one of the detectives. On questioning Billy tells them that he bought cat hashish from a mdinight driver, and offers to help the police track him down in exchange for his release.

Billy goes with the exprwss to a nearby market and points out the cab driver, but when they go to arrest the cabbie, it becomes apparent that the police have no intention of keeping their end of the deal with Billy.

He sees an opportunity and makes a run for it, only to get cornered and recaptured by the mysterious American.During his first night in holding at a local jail, a freezing-cold Billy sneaks out of his cell and steals a blanket. Later that night he is rousted from his cell and brutally beaten by chief guard Hamidou for the blanket theft.He wakes a few days later in Sagmalc?lar Prison, surrounded by fellow Western prisoners Jimmy (an American � in for stealing two candlesticks from a mosque), Max (an English heroin addict) and Erich (a Swede) who help him to his feet.

Jimmy tells Billy that the prison is a dangerous place for foreigners like themselves, and that no one can be trusted � not even the young children.Billy meets with his father, a U.S representative and a Turkish lawyer to discuss what will happen to him.

Billy is sent to trial for his case where the angry prosecutor makes a case against him for drug smuggling. The lead judge is sympathetic to Billy and gives him only a four-year sentence for drug possession.

Billy and his father are horrified at the outcome but their Turkish lawyer insists that the term is a very good result.Jimmy tries to encourage Billy to become part of an escape attempt through imcb prison's tunnels.

Believing he is to be released soon Billy rebuffs Jimmy who goes on to attempt an escape himself being brutally beaten for this. In 1974, Billy's sentence is overturned by the Turkish High Court jidnight Ankara after a prosecution appeal (the prosecutor originally wished to have him found guilty of smuggling and not the lesser charge of possession), and he is ordered to serve a 30-year-to-life term for his crime.

Billy goes along with a prison-break Jimmy has masterminded. Billy, Jimmy, and Max try to escape through the catacombs below the prison, but their plans are revealed to the prison authorities by fellow-prisoner Rifki. His stay becomes harsh and brutal: terrifying scenes of physical and mental torture follow one another, culminating in Billy having a breakdown.

He beats up and nearly kills Rifki. Following this breakdown, he is sent to the prison's ward for the insane where he wanders in a daze among the other disturbed and catatonic prisoners. He meets fellow prisoner Ahmet whilst participating in the regular inmate activity of walking in a circle around a pillar. Ahmet claims to be a casr from Oxford University and engages him in conversation to which Billy is unresponsive.In 1975, Billy's girlfriend Susan comes to see him.

Devastated at what has happened to Billy, she tells him that he has to escape or else he will die in there. She leaves him a scrapbook with money hidden inside as "a picture of your good friend Mr.

Franklin from the bank," � hoping Billy can use it to help him escape. Her visit moves Billy strongly, and he regains his senses. He says goodbye to Max, telling him not to die promising to come back for him. He bribes Hamidou into taking him to the sanitarium, where there are no guards. Instead, Hamidou takes Billy past the sanitarium to another room � and prepares to rape him. Fighting back, Billy inadvertently kills Hamidou by pushing him onto a coat hook. He seizes the opportunity to escape by putting on a guard's uniform and walking out of the front door.

In the epilogue, it is explained that � on the night of October 4, 1975 � he successfully crossed the border to Greece, and arrived home three weeks later.

On October 6, 1970 while boarding an international flight out of Istanbul Airport, American Billy Hayes is caught attempting to smuggle 2 kilos of hashish out of the country, the drugs strapped to his body.

He is told that he will be released if he cooperates with the authorities in identifying the person who actually sold him the hash. Billy's troubles really begin when after that assistance, he makes a run for it and is recaptured. He is initially sentenced to just over four years for possession, with no time for the more harsh crime of smuggling. The prison environment is inhospitable in every sense, with a sadistic prison guard named Hamidou ruling the prison, he who relishes the mental and physical torture he inflicts on the prisoners for whatever reason.

Told to trust no one, Billy does befriend a few of the other inmates, namely fellow American Jimmy Booth (in for stealing two candlesticks from a mosque), a Swede named Erich, and one of the senior prisoners having already . Written byHuggo Plot Summary | Plot Synopsis TriviaColumbia was pushing hard for Richard Gere to take the lead role but Alan Parker was very unhappy with this decision, especially as Gere refused to audition for the role.

Parker persisted in screentesting other actors and had three very strong auditions from Sam Bottoms, Dennis Quaid and Brad Davis.

These helped make the studio see that Gere wasn't the best choice. (The casting of Dennis Quaid would have been very interesting as his elder brother Randy Quaid had already been cast.) See more � Quotes[ first lines][ Susan makes her way through a line at an airline checkpoint]Susan:Excuse me.

It is loosely based on Billy Hayes' book of the same name. It tells of American Midnight express cast imdb (Brad Davis) arrest and subsequent conviction for trying to smuggle hashish out of Istanbul, Turkey, for which he was sent to a hellish Turkish prison to serve his time.

It also stars Randy Quaid, John Hurt, Paul Smith and Irene Miracle. Music is scored by Giorgio Moroder and cinematography is by Michael Seresin.Although controversy followed it due to its portrayals of the Turkish people, Midnight Express is today still a raw and uncompromising experience.

In fact if we strip away Moroder's Oscar winning electro bubbling score, the film holds up as a fresh and pertinent piece of film making. Parker doesn't cut corners or attempt any sort of Hollywood gloss, he keeps it grimy, oppressive and harsh in its telling, whilst the hand-held camera work keeps things jittery, harmonising with Billy Hayes and his fellow cons' state of mind. The narrative unfurls from Billy's POV, and it's mostly in a downwards direction, with that it's hard to call the picture essential entertainment, we are after all observant to mental and exlress abuse, with the disintegration of the human spirit front and centre.

Billy's alienation is deftly expres by Imdbb, where the non use of subtitles for the Turkish characters helps us to feel as isolated as Billy was.

However, there's the odd glimmer of hope and humanity, courtesy of Billy's interactions within the few friendships he forms, mdinight of course there's the overriding urge to see him escape his hell.Stone won the Academy Award for his screenplay, and even though it has been frowned upon umdb some of the perceived bile unleashed on the Turks, it mostly excels on a human's under duress basis.

The interactions between prisoners is often solemn and edgy, due to the characters being from different walks of life, while much of Hayes' outpourings of emotion have conviction by way of the wxpress even if one particular "speech" is ill advised and over the top. Cast are excellent, midnigt Davis calls on the sadness in his real life upbringing to give a performance of real intensity, while Hurt and Quaid are beaten down by drug fuelled expeess and tempestuousness respectively. It has flaws, and the over dramatising of certain events tends to deviate nidnight a real story that hardly needed extra oomph, but always Midnight Express remains a harrowing and potent piece of cinema.

Robot: Season 293%One Mississippi: Season 193%Pitch: Season 1 Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, and Kirsten Dunst star in writer/director Jeff Nichols' drama about a father and his eight-year-old son who go on the lam upon discovering that the boy possesses mysterious powers. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi After making his name with three independent films in Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter and Mud, director Jeff Nichols approaches his fourth feature with a bigger budget, making it his first studio production and allowing him to operate on a slightly more ambitious and grander scale.

However, Nichols has a particular approach to storytelling and resists the urge to let the budget overshadow his intentions. Fans of his will be happy to hear that he continues his promise as a director with great depth and substance.Alton (Jaeden Lieberher) is young boy with a very special gift.

So special that it attracts the attention of religious extremists and vast Federal Government. To protect him, his father Roy (Michael Shannon) and his longtime friend Lucas (Joel Edgerton) go on experss run with Alton to try and uncover the truth behind his special powers and how it could have a huge impact on the world itself.From his aforementioned independent films, Nichols utilised the intensive talents of Michael Shannon and it has become a solid collaboration that you can rely on.

With the exception of Mud, Shannon again fxpress front-and centre in Midnight Special and it's yet another example of how this actor/director partnership works so well.

Nichols likes to tread a particularly methodical path with his stories and Shannon always seems to know the terrain very well, midnlght Nichols' approach with his usual brooding intensity. What's different this time, however, is that Nichols aims higher and quite literally aims for the stars.

Gone is the Shakespearean tragedy of Shotgun Stories and the parable of Mud and in its place we experience the otherworldly and supernatural elements imdn he attempted midnivht Take Shelter.

In doing so, Nichols puts his trust in the audience to accept the premise and roll with it. It's a gamble but it's a gamble that pays off due to Nichols' sincere approach to the story and through the sincerity of his committed cast.There's and unmistakable flavour of Spielberg's Close Acst of the Third Kind and John Carpenter's Starman but yet still has the deliberate approach that Exlress has shown in his previous films.

He resists the urge to shower the narrative in schmaltz, instead choosing to linger long on shots and capture the angst amongst his characters.Is it formulaic? Yes. Is it predictable? Yes it is, but despite the formula and the film heading closer and closer to a predictable conclusion, Nichols still manages to pull through. His revelations verge on going too far but by the end mifnight realise that you've witnessed a film that crosses all sorts of genres; it's an introspective drama, a restrained chase movie and an imaginative Sci-Fi and it tackles all the tropes with a deftness and skill.

We've seen it all before but Nichols utilises that sense of wonder and touches upon the biblical elements that made his previous films so engaging. His grandest achievement, though, is maintaining a freshness and preventing a tried-and-tested story from becoming stale.Much of Nichols' vision wouldn't be realised without his strong cast. For imaginative and otherworldly material of this type, it requires a commitment from those onscreen and all the principal leads deliver; Shannon is always an actor that can express so much by doing so little and it's easy to see why Nichols stands by him but it was the emotive (if underwritten) Dunst and, particularly, the charismatic Edgerton that really stood out caxt me.

They both offer an emotional balance to Shannon's stoicism and young newcomer Jacob Lieberher has an ease and likability that convinces.It's four for four from Nichols now and he's fast became a director that instills a feeling of anticipation on the news of a new project.

His next film Loving (again with Edgerton and Shannon) can't arrive quick enough.Mark Walker Midnight Special has all the makings of a great midnigt but can just as easily be written off as pretentious dribble.An amazing cast, sensible script and believable dialogue dresses up a seemingly biblical tale that illustrates the existence of a supernatural race and a child's destiny to join them.Perhaps it's a story about parental love, or the second coming of Christ, or aliens, the list goes on.

Whatever it is it's clearly beyond our scope of understanding.And I suppose that's the point, we're not meant to "get it" but such mythical themes can only be so shrouded before it's seen as senseless. ?Jeff Nichols should already be a household name after Mud and Take Shelter, and with his new movie Midnight Special, the man has done nothing to break his incredible record of success with making deeply personal, ruminative, thrilling, and brilliant films.

Midnight Special is a better and more earnest love letter to the cinema of Spielberg than Super 8 was. A young boy exhibits strange and supernatural powers. The religious compound he came from looks at him as a prophet. The government thinks he might be expresz weapon. Two different groups are on the hunt for this boy, and that's where Nichols drops us right into the middle of, respecting the
