Wonderland (1997) Movie Review

A surprisingly powerful documentary, Wonderland is an expose of Levittown, the first tract house community -- 17,000 identical homes in the middle of Long Island built immediately after World War II. At the time, it was held up as a paragon of perfect living. Today, it seems Levittown is only a stone's throw from Peyton Place, with tales of wife-swapping, haunted houses, and general neurosis all easy to come by. "Famous" residents like Bill "Zippy the Pinhead" Griffith and Eddie Money wax philosophical about the town, while interviews with its residents get stranger and stranger by the minute. Recommended.
