‘White Lightnin’ stands midway between a bad trip and a depression. What a raw bitterness and misery. And the brimstone sermons between the scenes are also not really cheerful. White’s outbursts of anger are very intense. The complete unpredictability of his character is strongly acted. Although White commits one atrocity after another, he remains to get continuously your sympathy.
a very crazy, violent & emotional movie about a lonely & depraved kid/young man..! this film is very weird & also totally thrilling the whole time - great acting work !!! and the chili blow-job was pretty funny..!
