  • Summary: A thought-provoking road trip through the American South, this film is a collage of stories and testimonies, almost invariably of sudden death, sin or redemption: Heaven or Hell, with no middle ground. (Films Transit International)

    A beautifully shot and edited film that treats its subjects fairly.
  2. Occasionally, this richly lyrical movie passes over the line separating sympathetic exploration from freak-show condescension.
  3. 60
    A lovely, faintly sinister travelogue.
  4. 50
    Far too often, Douglas indulges his preference for the superficial over the substantive: The plentiful performance footage -- shot in overproduced, music-video fashion -- overwhelms the film, as do White’s purplish, faux-poetic musings.

    Tiresome, trite and choked with every lousy Dixie-fried stereotype imaginable.
