The art-house version of a summer blockbuster: All style and no substance.

In devoting all of their efforts towards the film's look and feel, co-creators Mark and Michael Polish have crafted a motion picture that is static, occasionally opaque, and, worst of all, boring.

So stuck is the movie inside the heads and hearts of its indisputably gifted makers, it never quite makes the leap into ours.

It does look good, I just didn't feel like it had a story that moved me.

Slant Magazine

A Dali-esque dreamscape where visual inventiveness and narrative incoherence combine to form a result that's both entrancing and sleep-inducing.

It plays out, dreamlike, often beautifully shot and visually appealing, but seemingly without purpose.

The cinematic equivalent of an elaborate and poetically constructed non sequitur.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Perhaps the Polish brothers' strategy is to put the audience to sleep so viewers aren't sure what parts of the movie they watched and what parts they dreamed.

"Northfork" benefits from reflection, but there is no denying its flaws. The Polish brothers clearly have a vision, but it is rarified and they only succeed in conveying part of it

What little enthusiasm I drummed up for this hyper-precocious indie will be tucked away for December's Worst of the Year list.

Movie Boeuf

This Polish brothers' drama, about the imminent flooding of a small Montana town, takes on the unfortunate air of an inside joke that you're not invited to share.

The movie is as much a triumph of production design as any popcorn blockbuster -- and just as shallow on the inside.

Northfork feels like the unedited dream sequence from the movie it might have been, if only there'd been someone to wake up from it.

Though the Polish brothers are saying good-bye to the heartland with the conclusion of Northfork, you may feel as if you've beat them out of town.
