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.
The bleached out look, more famously done in Tom Cruises "Minority Reprt, does better here. Giving us a feeling were watching things through a fog.
The movie wont be for everyone. If you like your entertainment simple and light. This may not be the movie for you. If you aren't afraid to invest yourself, check it out. It's worth it.
