Bow accents nuance

Artists compared interpretations at Joseph's Café

This article was corrected on July 15, 2003.

“Northfork” preemgoers couldn’t rely on the easy summaries of so many summer movies (explosions, more explosions, car chase, hero triumphs) at the pic’s Arclight bow Thursday night.

Paramount Classic’s co-prexy Ruth Vitale said the pic was “incandescent, slightly kooky and wonderfully surreal,” while co-prexy David Dinerstein dubbed it “a fever dream.” Star Nick Nolte embraced the pic’s enigmatic abstraction by calling it “suddenly dead.”

Co-writer Mark Polish (brother Michael Polish directed) said, “The film will tell you what it is. It embraces you.”

Among those comparing interpretations at the Joseph’s Cafe after-party were Par’s Rob Friedman and John Goldwyn; stars James Woods, Ben Foster and Daryl Hannah; and guests Kathy Bates, Albert Berger, Mary Steenburgen, Jason Lee, Andy Dick and Colin Hanks.
