Wild And Wonderful Whites Of West Virginia
documentary about a family of hicks in west virginia who come from a tradition of dancing. the film doesn’t really cover the dancing too much, rather it focuses on the inane and insane characters in the extended family. they’re pretty much all on drugs and it seems that at least one of them is in jail at any given time. it’s the liberal stereotype of the southern or back country hick. the conservative side of the same coin is the black welfare queen living off the government and having 8 kids from 7 different guys. it’s essentially the real life version of winter’s bone, but, oddly, without any meth. they seemed to do every other drug in the book, but not meth. to me, it just proves that these problems are caused by upbringing and class, not race or geography.
