I'm impressed...
4 January 2000 | by inframanSee all my reviews

I have to admit I've never seen the complete movie from end-to-end, because I seem to keep catching it in sections when the Indie channel substitutes it for something else that didn't work out. That said, everything I've seen of The Bible and Gun Club is intense, gritty, funny, outrageous & pathetically real. In a way it's like a cross between Salesman (the Maysles brothers) and Gummo. It deserves some sort of recognition or award for bringing attention to a very sad and dangerous and banal condition that exists all over this country. On a cinematic level, it works so well because of how uncinematic it is.
