It's my thesis that globalization and gutting-for-profit of America's economy and business has made poor whites out of the rest of America. The Southern poor whites have been snookered for a hundred years or more, told how noble they are (not white and proud of the Confederacy, God help them) by politicians they then elect...and promtply get screwed by. Year after year, they are Charlie Brown going after the football.
Well now the nation has its own Southern politician-writ-large, DJT and now he is playing Lucy ant the football with the rest of the country.

Thank you for reviewing this film. It is now on my list at NetFlix. You might want to read Annie Proulx's That Old Ace in the Hole for another view of the same physical territory.

Also Proulx's book of short stories, Close Range--fergot to mention that.
