News & Interviews for Northfork
Critic Reviews for Northfork
For me, the Polish brothers marched down a road leading nowhere.
A compelling juxtaposition of the poignant and the bizarre, a movie that tosses moviemaking rules into the nearest Cuisinart.
For those on its peculiar wavelength, everything fits. For those who aren't, it's a painful piece of self-impressed drivel. Either way, you'll know you've been to the movies.
It's a tone poem of a movie, more visual than coherent. As such, what it's about is less important than the spell it casts.
An insufferably artsy, pretentious work, the sort of picture that gives art films a bad name.
Audience Reviews for Northfork
In 1955, officials try to convince reluctant residents of Northfork, Montana (one of who has built an ark) to leave before the town is flooded by new dam construction; meanwhile, a dying orphan meets a ghostly family and tries to convince them to take him with them. The mildly surreal Big Sky spirituality here may be too dry to inspire as intended, but it does set a unique and thoughtful mood.
