Winter Sleep

OMG that is three hours of my life that I won't get back again.   Still the warmth of the movie theatre did make me nod off a bit, and I was tempted about four times to walk out and leave, which several patrons did.  A Turkish movie that won awards at Cannes, the appeal of the movie was lost on me.   A boorish self important ex actor sits in his cave home in the Turkish countryside.  He has to deal with some of his tenants who are down on their luck and having trouble finding money to pay the bills and a young wife, bored with her life and marriage.

Way too long and with long long periods of boring dialogue, I have to give it a 1/5 for the scenery of an area in Turkey that I visited twenty years ago.
