STYLE AND THEMES
Ceylan's films deal with the estrangement of the individual, existentialism , the monotony of human lives, and the details of everyday life. He uses static shots and long takes , usually in natural settings, as well as play with sound, including the use of menacing silences. He is known for filming his protagonist from behind, which, in his view, leaves the audiences to speculate on the brooding emotions of characters whose faces are obscured. Until Climates, Ceylan's films are made on low budgets, with casts generally consisting of amateur actors, most of whom are family members (such as his mother and father).
Ceylan named his ten favorite films in the 2012 Sight & Sound
