William Eggleston = kind of a big deal
11 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Cinematographer Eggleston is even better known as a world famous still color photographer. I found my way to this via my passion for Memphis music (Alex Chilton) and well, this film is Cinema Verite at its best. Intuitive filming of "white trash" from the early 70's - this is true Americana. As the saying goes... "you Can't Make This Sfuff Up." In Addition to the crazed alchoholics and jackasses there are also gentle moments such as the opening footage of children licking raindrops with the sound of locomotices and birdsongs in the background. A secret little classic that will become even more legendary over time. Trust moi.
