Storyline

During prohibition days, many hillbilly moonshine stills were hidden in hills of middle America. Jed Muldoon was about the best runner of moonshine whiskey around. Usually the local yokels were kinfolk of the runners and looked the other way while they were doing business. Naturally, the federal government was missing out on some tax money and were determined to shut them down. There's three things the government will never control, and one is making home brew.

A very stylish movie
16 January 1999 | by Jack-91See all my reviews

I sat down and turned on the tube as this TV movie was about to begin. I knew nothing about this film but as the first few scenes went by it was clear that there was a talented filmmaker at work. I know nothing what so ever about Mr. Armstrong, the director, but that is bound to change. The film kind of reminded me of Roberto Rodriguez's work, in its love of old rock'n roll, car chases and cool characters that talk cool. But by saying that I am not taking anything away from Mr. Armstrong's highly stylised originality. It would be and probably will be interesting to see what Mr. Armstrong could do if given a higher budget and a bigger platform on which he can display his considerable talent.
