Storyline

Four drinking buddies with a dark secret reunite after ten years for a bachelor party on the Bluegrass Bourbon Trail in 1977 rural Kentucky. But when the friends discover that their favorite distillery has been turned into a winery, the newly sober groom, Gordie, seizes on an even better adventure: search for the legendary buried Prohibition money deep within the woods of Bullitt County, KY. The others reluctantly join him on his quest, only to discover there's something much more dangerous in Bullitt County than cursed treasure. The friends may have forgotten the dark secret from their past, but the past hasn't forgotten them. Written by Mr. Pictures

Quotes

Keaton: It didn't make a difference whether we had the money or not. They thought we did without any proof or anything. You saw him, Gordie. You saw him, he went for that rifle, but you got to it first. He was gonna shoot me. You saved my life. You saved me. He was gonna kill me.
Gordie: I killed him...
Keaton: Yeah, but don't you get it? The legend was real. It was real. I can't fucking believe it myself. You wanted to come out into the woods and look for buried treasure. Well here you go! Buried fuckin' treasure. ...

A Wild Ride!
6 March 2019 | by outskirtsfilmfestSee all my reviews

What a wild ride. Starts out fun and free-wheeling, like "Easy Rider," a bunch of buds hanging out, but this movie goes to some dark places. The main character, Gordie, is basically Repression in human form (he's a recovering alcoholic, a Vietnam vet who got injured and shipped back to the States, and a guilt-ridden guy who is burdened with a huge -- and dark -- secret he shares with his friends).

If you're expecting a run-of-the-mill thriller, this isn't for you. "Bullitt County" is much deeper, more nuanced, than your average film. It's fun and exciting and riveting, sure, but ultimately, it made me really think about some of the deeper themes it was exploring. Beautifully directed, written, shot, edited, scored, etc., this movie really is the whole package, with some outstanding performances from the lead Mike C. Nelson as Gordie and David McCracken (who also wrote and directed the film) as his best friend.

Now that I know how the whole movie ends, I'm going to give it a rewatch... so many fun surprises throughout. Can't recommend highly enough.
