RIP Alan Parker (1944 – 2020)

Alan Parker was an English filmmaker with a small but highly-rated output.

The Chase” (1978)

I give you “The Chase”, an electronic instrumental written by Giorgio Moroder for Parker’s film Midnight Express (1978).

Midnight Express, a story of drug smuggling and dirty Turkish prisons, was banned in Turkey under Article 301 of the Turkish Penal Code.

This caused a strain on US–Turkish relations.
