What [the Polish brothers] got here is a lot of quirky ideas piled up neatly next to one another and trying, sometimes too desperately, to harmonize and mean something big. They don't, but there's real fascination in watching them try.

It is impossible to describe all the rich layers of Northfork, clearly an exhausting labor of love for the Polish brothers who wrote, produced, directed and star in the mystical movie.

A story so tender, so achingly sweet, you'll forgive the rest of the film its amorphousness.

Northfork has a fascinating combination of desolation and fantasy, both visually and emotionally.

You'll embrace Northfork - or you'll wish they'd flood the town sooner. What you won't deny is that you've seen something unique.

A beautiful film about the crossroads of life.

A movie that leaves plenty of room for interpretation.

Northfork isn't a great picture, but it restores to independent movies a tradition of extravagant weirdness that's been missing since David Lynch went uptown.

Beautiful images, fabulous cast, and eclectic characters you give a dam about transform this bizarre story into a fairy tale worth watching.

There's always the scenery, no matter what you may think of the film's bizarre melange of surrealism and metaphysics.

Every second of it was entrancing, and the filmmakers did not waste a second of their relatively brief 103 minute running time.

The experience of seeing Northfork is a bit like being inside a dream.
July 19, 2003
The Polish brothers have clearly not let realism get in the way of a great story. Surrealism is their watchword, or magic realism if you will, and enjoyment of the tale depends on surrendering to its powers.

A beautiful, superbly crafted, constantly surprising film that completely transports you into its peculiar world.

A hypnotic masterpiece, it grabs hold and won't let go until you've fallen under its spell.
