Storyline

Adult businesses in Lowndes County, Mississippi (the "Buckle of the Bible Belt") are being unfairly harassed by local law enforcement. Record label owner Shane Ballard, 22, plans to change that. He is a Republican candidate for sheriff. This documentary follows Ballard on and off the campaign trail during his controversial bid for public office. Along the way, we learn about his strange music, his even stranger hobbies, and his friendship with Charles Manson. We also discover some unsettling truths about his mother's mysterious death in Lowndes County. Can an obscene, porn-loving political unknown change minds in a small southern town? If anyone can, it's "Citizen Shane". Written by Anonymous

Manson's best friend.
4 September 2004 | by (Brooklyn, USA) – See all my reviews

Literally orphaned by police conspiracy, Shane Ballard is not your usual serial murderer and stripper obsessed self-marginalized southern small town eccentric. Whether he's pursuing the impossible dream of becoming Loundes County sheriff to find his mother's murderer or having a cozy heart to heart phone chat with Charles Manson, CITIZEN SHANE portrays the charismatic Shane without a whiff of exploitation or condescension and with a lot of humor and affection. If you're an American despairing the willing cultural, political and social homoginization that's transformed this once great country into a conformist and ironist limbo, this film will reafirm your faith in being smart, curious and weird. Find a copy of this documentary and check it out.
