It's a recipe for magical realism, and the Polish brothers deliver with a stunning cinematic statement.

This droll surrealistic fantasy is like a gentler David Lynch hallucination.

October 23, 2003
The Polish brothers may be too clever for their own good; this film feels self-indulgent, like an inside joke we could never get without reading a book about the film.

Northfork will give you food for reflection or a case of the hives.

Surreal, oddly punny, and yet mostly a meditation on letting go of the dearly departed.

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.

The movie is rich with pathos, grace and absurdist humor, but it takes a couple of viewings to get a firm handle on what the hell is going on.
