"Searching for The Wrong-Eyed Jesus is a captivating and compelling road  trip through the creative spirit of the the South of the USA. Director  Andrew Douglas’s film follows "Alt Country" singer Jim White through a  gritty terrain of churches, prisons, truck stops, biker bars and coal  mines. This journey takes you through a very real contemporary Southern  America, a world of marginalised white people and their unique and  home-made culture. Along the way are roadside encounters with  present-day musical mavericks including The Handsome Family, Johnny  Dowd, 16 Horsepower and David Johansen; oldtime banjo player Lee Sexton;  rockabilly and mountain Gospel churches - and novelist Harry Crews  telling grisly stories down a dirt track."
I watched this with Paul last night. He apologised for making me watch it, but it was actually really good. I still think that most of the people from the South are batshit crazy - and this film does nothing to disprove that - but in their own way they have this strange kind of intelligence. Also, the music is brilliant. Go listen to The Handsome Family, right now.
