In Turkish Films And TV, It's Ottoman-ia
"Since the lavish, feel-good Turkish epic Conquest 1453 had its premiere this year, its tale of the taking of Constantinople by the 21-year-old Sultan Mehmet II has become the highest-grossing film in Turkey's history ... But its biggest impact may be the cultural triumphalism it has magnified at home." The New York Times 10/30/12
