Gummo made sense and followed some sort of a story, it would probably have ended up being a lot like White Lightnin. Mix in elements of Charles Manson and a gritty rockabilly soundtrack and you would definitely have White Lightnin. The truth is this movie is exactly what I have been waiting for. Its a modern film but its a old style of film making that is seldom seen today. White Lightnin holds no punches and doesn't care who it offends, which is good because it is bound to offend a lot of people. With that said I truly believe that a new cult classic is born.
There is no doubt about it, White Lightnin is my favorite movie to come out in a long time. Its has proven to me that there is still a chance for modern cinema. Just when I was starting to believe the only entertaining movies that would ever be released again would be homage flicks like Black Dynamite and Machete. Well White Lightinin proved me wrong. Check it out for a trip into madness with a bad-ass sountrack that consist of Hasil Adkins and Stringbean. We also have plenty of brain damaging inhalants and a bit of violence for all you sadists. A must see white-trash spectacle.
