Why have such old cars from the 30s and 40s yet with a 55 Chevy? Cows out on a desert? Seems to be fantasy like a Bergman movie.
I think is safe to say that there really is nothing else like Northfork. Strange and beautiful, with a very strong cast of characters. Worth seeking out if you can find it.
From the marketing, the black and white style, all the strange oddities carefully placed, you felt certain, then less certain, then hoped, then despaired that this movie is at some point going to have a point, and are ultimately angry and pissed off when you realize the whole thing is this farce of a production company's practical joke on you.
Yes, I actually think these people sat around one day and asked the question "What is the stupidest most ridiculous deranged plot we can come up with to lead people around by the nose with for an hour or two and piss them off?" Northfork is their result.
Well, I don't think sucker punching moviegoers is funny.
Oh and also, the stupid little things like it being set in 1950's but them lining up a joke like "What you talking about Willis?" when we know that phrase occurred in a TV show (Different Strokes in the 80's) is just so stupid as to be dumber than the most obvious pun. Or a man sitting in a dress saying "Hello, My name is Cup of Tea...,"
Let me sum my comments up for the production company and writer / producer this way:
Don't put everything you think or dream up on a movie screen, most of it most certainly doesn't belong there. People like you are what youtube is for...put your visual and creative vomit there so you don't cause collateral damage and charge people for the "privilege".
The only redeeming quality of this movie is to use it as an April Fool's joke on someone who doesn't know how much you really hate them. Tell them how wonderful and profound and "must see" this film and then laugh in their faces when they predictably look at you like you are an alien or start screaming at you the next time you see them after they "sucker sit" in front of it.
