Trivia

In his "Spoken Word" concerts, Henry Rollins talked about how he was very nervous about his nude scene and could not overcome his shyness. When he was finally able to complete the scene he was relieved, then disappointed when it was such a brief shot in the final version of the film. See more »

Goofs

Although the film takes place in the 1950s, Henry Rollins visibly sports tattoos declaring his love for punk rock bands formed long after this. See more »

A refreshingly gentle 'old school' movie
7 October 2008 | by Big-Dave74See all my reviews

I only checked this out because Henry Rollins has a lead role in it, and to be truthful, I didn't expect too much from plot other than a typical 'cons turn on each other for a violent climactic battle' kind of a deal. How wrong I was. The whole film plays out with a gentle whimsy evocative of the Waltons, or the great TV serialisation of The adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. They make good use of the 'deep south' setting, with no need for making out that the inhabitants are inbred cannibals or sodomites, the music score is perfect, and the performances across the board are solid. The story loses momentum around 2/3rds of the movie, but is replaced by a rather nicely done bitter/sweet ending.

Its never going to be considered a classic, cult or otherwise, but if you liked 'Crossroads' or the above TV shows I mentioned, or just want a well put together, unpretentious, engaging film, then you could do far, far worse.
