Quotes

[first lines]
Noel Hickman: [voice-over] I don't know who started all this talk about good always being mixed up with bad, and bad with good. All I know is, when people are alone, when there's no law to see to it that they got to stand inside the bounds; then they're either all good or all bad. And it's a tough thing for a boy to find out that his pa is one of the bad.

A kind of illustrated tale, a kind of "red neck" western.
4 December 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

It is a strange movie, but it is absolutely not "the worst movie ever" as some other reviews say.

Don't watch it as an action movie.

There is a lot of music.

There is action too, but that's not what is important in this movie.

It's a kind of ballad, a kind of contemplative movie.

A kind of illustrated tale, with images and music.

The soundtrack is quite nice (especially the instrumental song played through out the entire movie, I suppose it's banjo).

It's a kind of "red neck" western.

It's not perfect, it's a Z movie made with no money, and the DVD I found had sound problems, but I like this movie.

There is poetry in it.
