Gay life in rural America
6 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Winner of two awards and beaten at Sundance by a documentary on my "must see" list, this is a film about gay life in the Bible Belt.

Malcolm Ingram, who also writes, and even crewed on Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, is changing from comedy with his third film as a director, and doing a great job at it.

This film is like a roller-coaster in that one minute you are partying along with the patrons of "Rumors," a gay and lesbian bar in Shannon, MS; and the next you are hearing about a brutal torture and murder of a man in Bay Minette; Then we visit "Crossroads" in Meridian, where anything goes, and are partying big time. Other bars in North Mississippi are also profiled before we end up back at Crossroads and Rumors.

Oh, yes, Meridian is the birthplace of Fred Phelps, so you have to feature him in the film, too. Another piece of the puzzle that is this man? And, of course, you have Donald Wildmon of the American Family Association in Tupelo, so having a gay bar in Mississippi is a challenge.

This was an extremely interesting film about people that just want to be left alone to have fun.
