Tonight! The 4DK Monthly Movie Shout Down talks Turkish trash with CASUS KIRAN, aka TURKISH SPY SMASHER!

Turkey, where the men are men, the women are armed, and the air is thick with a heady musk of testosterone and motorcycle exhaust. This is a nation that, throughout the 60s, created an action cinema unlike any other, of which Yilmaz Atadeniz's Casus Kiran, aka Turkish Spy Smasher, is a particularly rollicking example. Join the proud men and women of the Shout Down Crew tonight as we tweet along to this ADD addled tour de force. The fun starts at 6pm PT, sharp, when YOU will log in to Twitter, fire up the movie using the link below and, using the hashtag #4DKMSD, join the lively conversation that this rowdy, rough edged masterpiece will no doubt inspire.

Be forewarned, however, that, because film preservation is a pastime deemed too effete by a nation whose men and women have so much spy smashing to do, Casus Kiran looks like it has spent the last 47 years marinating in a rancid pond. That is just the way these movies look, and trying to ascertain what is going on in them while viewing them through a curtain of filth and decay is just part of the process of watching them. You'll get used to it.
