Disturbing and somewhat terrifying documentary by Roberto Minervini that focuses on an underclass in American society residing in Louisiana. Too easy to dismiss as white trash these citizens are the forgotten; the downtrodden; the marginalized. The first half of the film has humanity shine through despite the drug use, frank sexuality and poisoned views. The second focuses on militia and 2nd amendment rights.
Minervini brutally follows the real lives of "The Others" in America's underbelly: the rotten-teeth methheads, homes with no electricity,pregnant strippers shooting heroin, trashy beer & sex parties,drunk grandparents. Despite all,love,and family and tears,regrets & freedom. Side by side with the scary final segment: gun-totting citizen militias, ready to shoot their way to revolution. [cont.] ||| IndieLisboa16
