Midnight Express, although "based on a true story", Oliver Stone's screenplay took many liberties with Billy Hayes' account of his experience and is harshly racist in its depiction of Turkish people. Having said this, it is worth watching for Brad Davis' exceptional performance, one of the all-time great Oscar snubs.

Midnight Express (1978)this is one of the most powerful prison films I have ever seen ....the script was written by a very young Oliver Stone who would go on to become the director we all know.
