I’ve been on a bit of a “watching” spree since I’ve been out of the loop for a while and enjoying a new Netflix account.
Northfork was pretty interesting since it’s so visual. The sights are stunning in a subtle way, and the movie is compelling in a subtle way. Definitely something neat to sit back and ponder.
The movie focuses on a town about to be flooded for a dam. This is a topic I’ve come back to now and again since I started college. Hampshire College worked to instill a knowledge of what lies beneath the Quabbin Reservoir that quenches Boston’s thirst. I had always wondered what the process was like, at the time, getting people to leave. I think this movie looks into that time and that feeling, but in a setting that has grander visuals than Massachusetts. Montana is, after all, rather vast in comparison.
