Based on William Hayes's autobiography, MIDNIGHT EXPRESS tells the harrowing story of a young American tourist arrested and sentenced to 30 years in prison by Turkish authorities for trying to smuggle two kilos of hashish out of the country. Billy (Brad Davis), suffering through the harsh realities of the Turkish penal system, sees a glimmer of hope when his father (Billy Kellin) arrives from the States with the intention of securing his son's release. But when that effort fails and the prison's savage environment becomes too much to bear, Billy opts for the only possible solution: breaking out of jail and riding the "midnight express"--prison slang for escape--to freedom. Director Alan Parker (MISSISSIPPI BURNING), aided by Oliver Stone's Oscar-winning script, fastens an unflinching gaze into the darkest recesses of physical and emotional cruelty. Supporting cast members Randy Quaid, John Hurt, and Bo Hopkins give stellar performances, and Giorgio Moroder supplies a jagged yet entrancing soundtrack for a film that is at one and the same time a Kafkaesque nightmare, a riveting expose, and a testament to the dogged human thirst for dignity.

  • so racist!

    This movie, which was made using mostly Greek actors during a period of poor Turkish-Greek relations, was banned from the Cannes Film Festival in the year of its release, due to its racist depiction of the Turkish people. The director, Alan Parker, who went on to make such movies as Chariots of Fire and Mississippi Burning, has repeatedly expressed regret for the choices he made in bringing to the screen this early film. Instead of buying this bigoted debacle, try the films Crossing the Bridge, Steam, or Distant for a more realistic depiction of Turkey and its people!
