Saw this documentary today in West Hollywood. Alt-country musician, champion of the redneck-underground, Jim White steers us through the deep South connecting the various threads that make this part of America such a potent, fertile, ground for music, literature, and art. Pure Southern Gothic. Picked up the stellar soundtrack in the lobby immediately following the film. Highly reccomended.
“An amazing piece of work. The film essentially follows one man, Jim White, as he deals with both his own, and the South’s demons…and in the process we are given a tour of another planet. Beautiful dark and weird stuff.”
