Parental discretion is advised for this unabashedly violent 1978 drama, which won an Oscar nomination for best film. Brad Davis stars as an American student socked away in a subhuman Turkish prison after he tries to leave Istanbul with two kilos of hashish tucked under his shirt. John Hurt and Randy Quaid perform ably in supporting roles.
