According to the video essay included in the home release, the filmmaker's name is pronounced NUR-EEE BILL-JAY JAY-LON. Did not know that.
Yeah Turkish is weird like that. The letter C either sounds like a J, like in this case, or if it has the little accent mark under it then it becomes a "ch". So that's where you get a word like piç, which looks like pic but sound like "peach". And means "bastard".
Also I would add that the "BILL" part of his name is sorta in between "BILL" and "BEEL". The i is another interesting one, if it has the dot on it then it sounds like that, but an i without a dot sounds like a schwa.
It's not actually too tricky to get Turkish pronunciation down, except for the guttural vowels with umlauts on em, those are hard for me anyway. There aren't all kinda weird arbitrary pronunciation rules like in English. It's straightforward enough that if you showed me written Turkish I could read it out loud and a Turkish-speaking person could understand me, and also if you say something to me in Turkish I can spell it pretty well, and I really don't know shit, maybe 15 or 20 words or something. It's a cool sounding language too, I think.
Ok sorry for getting off-topic, I'm just a sucker for Turkish is all
