APPLESAUCE Director Onur Tukel Talks Influences, Approaches and The Desire to fall in love With Cinema Again

Onur Tukel is easily one of the most unique filmmakers working today. His style, the way he approaches various topics (genre or not) and turns them on their head, he has such a talent for giving film lovers something different. Whether it’s 2014’s S.O.B.
