difficult to describe but here goes...
21 February 2006 | by (nyc) – See all my reviews

Transvestites, geek men biting off chicken heads, classy blues musicians, and crazed men with guns form the backbone of this delightful documentary look at the "Southern Hipsters" of louisiana and mississippi.

the film does not judge its motley crew of vivid characters, thus allowing the "cast" to openly reveal themselves on screen. the southern brand of 70s hipsters seem oddly drugged out as they bellow to the camera and preen their wares for all to see. interestingly, eggleston's choice of a primitive sony camcorder lends an odd glow to the images on screen, thus creating a surrealistic feel to the entire piece.

while the film is naturally a bit slow at points, the ending makes up for it all: a drunken drugged out pimp w/ his pistol plays Russian roulette while bizarre noise rock drones from a guitar somewhere in the background.
