Bill presents his story of 5 Corners with a delicate mix of passion and humor, satire and devotion. It's the story of a time in America that became a crossroads for a generation, as well as for a unique neighborhood called 5 Corners.

A strange film. I kind of liked it. Good acting, especially in an early role by John Turturro. Excellent acting by the penguins too. Quirky, unconnected stories… More

I don't know who said that this was a comedy. Hands down, the most disturbing John Turturro role I've ever seen. I dare you to compare. Watch it… More

A great feel of New York in this underrated comedy/drama.

A true hidden gem. I don't think I have heard a soul talk about this film but it is truly a good one. A great performance by Turturro..truly frightening.
