Everyone’s heard by now about Valley of the Wolves Iraq, the Turkish anti-American film that shows American soldiers in Iraq “crashing a wedding and pumping a little boy full of lead in front of his mother,” and “killing dozens of innocent people with random machine gun fire, shooting the groom in the head, and dragging those left alive to Abu Ghraib prison…where a Jewish doctor cuts out their organs, which he sells to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv,” according to a Feb. 2 Associated Press story by Benjamin Harvey. Wolves, essentially a Turkish variation on a mid ’80s Rambo film, opened in Turkey last Friday. “It feeds off the increasingly negative feelings many Turks harbor toward Americans,” Harvey’s story reports, and is “the latest in a new genre of popular culture that demonizes the U.S. It comes on the heels of a novel called ‘Metal Storm’ about a war between Turkey and the U.S., which has been a best seller for months.” What isn’t as well known is that Gary Busey and Billy Zane gave walk-on performances in the film, and that they’re going to take some heat from righties for helping to perpetrate anti-U.S. propaganda. A connected film guy from Manhattan (I’d give him credit but he might get pissed if I ran his name) confides he is “now hearing on the record that Busey signed on [to act in the film] without seeing a script and left for Turkey all in 48 hours. I am also told off the record that Zane did see a script but that the brutal stuff was added when he got to the shoot.” I’m told Wolves will screen at the Berlin Film Festival next week, but what about a U.S. screening for media types like myself?
