Storyline

Brother Edgar is a generous entrepreneur of low quality socks who hides behind a self-bestowed cassock to avoid the low level corruption of local sheriffs. He has adopted Morales Pittman, who has bigger, more illegitimate dreams than Edgar. The two travel about Arkansas, selling their socks and bumping into a variety of simple souls, including the eponymous mythic killer, who has engaged himself to Apple Lisa Weed and disavowed his life as a murderer. Morales Pittman joins forces with Miss Apple Lisa's dim-witted brother, Reggie, to extort money from the local bumpkins, to the annoyance of the reigning provider of "protection," Mr. Pines. Things come to a head as Edgar finds himself falling for the blind Eva Nell, who manages the best teahouse in Arkansas and Morales becomes more jealous of the place the Kid has taken in Edgar's heart.

Good to watch these great actors have fun in this movie
7 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As long as you aren't looking for a serious drama and can go along for the ride then you will enjoy this goofy movie. Great actors and hilarious situations make up for the confusing plot twist, and sub-par editing in this all around fun movie to watch. Although filmed in 99' it looks like a movie from the early 80's, like "The Legend of Billy Jean" and the plot moves along allot like that same movie. Dizzying pace of character introduction and plot twist. Still it is so much fun to watch these actors give it there all, with a somewhat vaporous understanding of there roles. Give it a try, it is worth it. Hope this makes some people take a look at this goofy movie.
