Great film
1 July 2008 | by Marc-86See all my reviews

This is a great film. It begins as seemingly a Michael Moore-esquire film, it summons the spirit of "Hands on a Hardbody", that Texas classic and has quite a few surprises. Crawford shows what spending a lot of time in a small town you once judged broadly can do. More should see this, and is should have a wide DVD distribution.

The story relating to the teacher, seemingly stuck in a town full of kool aid drinkers, is really the heart of the show. It was impressive how that story sneaks up on you and provides some hope for all small communities, that there is truth often subtly told to power. But it also shows how destructive those little personal sacrifices and "being different" have on the soul.

Truly one worth watching to see unanticipated effects of W's political theatre had on a small town. Great stuff.
