Abstract

Author(s): Bilal YORULMAZ, Tu?ba SARIMSAKI AKAR

Movies are one of the most widely used areas of mass media. Movies can reach audiences of millions through its screenings in the cinemas, broadcasting on television channels or on the internet or shared on social media. Even if movies have age restrictions, these restrictions are easily overcome on the internet. The language used and the behaviors shown in the movies reach very different audiences and may have positive or negative effects on them. This research of Cem Y?lmaz’s three films, "G.O.R.A.", "A.R.O.G." and “Arif V 216” considers their success at the box office and evaluated them in terms of religion and values. The result of the research into these three movies indicate that religion-related values are given very little. Verbal messages about religion are used as part of the daily speaking language and are generally not related to a particular religious personality representation. Sexual implications that may violate social values are frequently used and homosexuality is commonplace, and violence, swearing, and insult are shown as a normal behavior. Therefore, it has been shown that the films may have a negative impact on society. However, the prominent positive aspects of the films are the fact that religious images are not used as a comedy element; there is not any negative image of religious people that we are familiar with in the old Turkish comedy films, or of the glorification of values such as solidarity, brotherhood and friendship.
