Storyline

This is the story of Nat Banks, an 8th generation Virginian gentleman farmer living in the past, who loses his family farm, Greenwood, to a pair of land speculators from Washington, D.C. When the predatory couple manipulates a "legal" real estate transaction that turns into a hostile possession of the manor house, he temporarily loses his mind, leaving his family but not the farm. Instead he hides out in a cave on Goose Creek, waging guerilla warfare against expansionism and the destruction of historic property with the help of his family, friends, and neighbors...

McMansions Be Damned
6 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Down here in the "Old South," (northern Virginia), a promise is a promise. And if buyers of a forced-sale property renege on theirs to its previous owners, revenge should be savored. That's the premise behind "Crazy Like a Fox," and for everyone who has ever let practicality triumph over intuition, farmer Nat's revenge is sweet indeed. Roger Rees is hilarious, and the rest of the cast -- 90% of them local -- does a terrific job, too. This movie is a must-see not just for Southerners (old or young). It's for anyone from a place where former country roads are now six-lane Interstates, all exits leading to gated communities sprouting new red brick monstrosities cheek-to-jowl in treeless one-time cornfields. Thankfully, the photography is terrific, too -- because this countryside is vanishing so quickly that photos may soon be all we have left of it. A great movie that sticks with you.
