An early work by eclectic documentarian Errol Morris in which he attempts to take the pulse of a backwater white trash town in northern Florida. Those of you familiar with the geography will have an uncomfortable sense of déjà-vu while the rest of us will stare disbelievingly at the drawling preacher who makes an entire sermon out of the word "Therefore" (he also had to consult the dictionary to look up "conjunction"); the turkey enthusiast who views the hunt as an ongoing battle of wits (with the gobblers often coming out on top); and the incomprehensible septuagenarian who keeps possums and turtles in a makeshift pen for some reason or another. Morris' static camera and insistence that his redneck subjects completely empty their thoughts on film makes for one of the longest hours I've ever squirmed through. 'Murkah, f*ck yeah!
