|Plot||'Coney Island' is a surrealist performative experimental documentary exploring the gap between the nostalgic mythical view of Coney Island and the modern reality of the location. Inspired by the ironic tone of Luis Bunuel's Land Without Bread, the vintage filmstrip style narration in 'Coney Island' shows no mercy or compassion for the people it describes, causing a reaction of simultaneous humor, disgust, shame, and horror within its audience. Writer/director/producer Demi Pietchell ('Relative Dysfunction,' 2003) employs this technique in order to question the established stereotypical notions of both place and time while also calling attention to the conventional audience's assumption that the narrator will maintain impartial credibility. 'Coney Island' also explores the notion of society's 'tough love' heartlessness for the heroin addict, especially among his/her peers. The comic notion of society's having looked the other way is portrayed to an extreme which causes the audience to face its laughter as ironic guilt through its measure of coldness and cruelty.... search for Coney Island on IMDb|
