Soak It Up; Like the Video Box says: "A Big Apple Fairy Tale"
6 May 2005 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Having just purchased a copy of this forgotten little oddity on an obscure video label called North American Video (NA 1033) I figured to watch it right away. I had been admonished by the seller that this was an unusual movie. He wasn't kidding. After viewing it, there's no doubt it's "Independent Cinema". That's not a bad thing, but one must view this picture with an open mind if one is to derive any enjoyment from it. Any viewer expecting conventional plot devices is going to be in for a strange awakening because this movie has no real plot and has a kind of anarchic structure to all the activities that go on. What story there is revolves around Jacques Blinbaum (played by the rubber-limbed Tony Azito), who appears to be a gangster nicknamed The Falcon. His father is played by Brother Theodore at his most "normal" (I use the term loosely). Jacques then describes, in a fantasy-like way, his experiences beginning at age 17 where he gets the idea to fake his own kidnapping and extort money from his parents. There's a kind of surreal feel to this film and I watched it twice in one day because I thought it was interesting. APPLE PIE appears to have been filmed entirely on location in and around New York City. Whether one likes APPLE PIE or not, the ending is really cool! One last thing, the video box says "approx. 90 mins.", but it really runs only about 80 minutes.
