    Excellent

    I enjoyed this movie very much, for the very reason so many see it as slow in action. It takes a long time, a lot of guts to say what we mean aspecially in this area of our life. For some this is a true journey of self discovery. There was clearly a struggle in these characters, struggle they were able to overcome. It was perfect; not everything has to be so obvious. There is a beautiful mystery in our life, a mystery which we are able to penetrate only if we choose to stay with it. And then comes the joy of knowing and being assured that we have found it, found finally what we have been looking for!!! Beautiful, thanx.

    A DANGLING PARTICIPLE-SWEATY SOUTHERN STYLE

    Tag purvis, whoever he is, captured the southern psyche in this semi-quasi-homo-erotic -incestuous-brooding-sweaty tale, of woe. Purvis wanders around our characters as a 5 year old in a candy store. He just cannot seem to be able to pick the candy he wants, but,he has all these choices. Unfortunatly for us he is like a southern honey-bee, trying to pollinate all, but, is unable to bring to fruit, (no pun tended) the essence of his characters. There is a great scene of Palladino and Dan making love under a tree, and the way Dans' foot slips in and out of his pant-leg in rhythm , is very turn-on!! Karen Black did a fair job of the southern stressed woman, and Palladino as the cousin and lover of Griffith (Dan Montgomery),does a great job. Lee,(Walton Goggins)comes to town and rents a cottage that Griffith is fixing up to rent. There is an instant rapport between Lee and Griffith and they spend much time together, working on the cottage, (which I would die for) but, we cannot see this develope as the camera is focusing on Karen and Pallodino. Things come to a head when Griffith tells his aunt Karen and cousin, that he is leaving with Lee. Lee is trying to get him to leave, as he can see the emptiness in Griffith and the total futility of staying in this hick town and the bad relationship with his cousin.They draw blood on their palms and make a vow to leave. Pallidino accuses Griffith of being in love with Lee, and Griffith reacts violently to Pallidino, and tries to rape her to prove his manhood, she fights him off and he goes to find Lee. He confronts Lee, denies his feelings for him, hitting Lee and knocking Lee down. Lee leaves town, going to Calif. as he and Griff had planned, Pallidino leaves town and Griffith is still there, now alone, as he had told Pallidino he did not love her and their affair was wrong. Lee returns, as he cannot leave without saying how sorry he was for assuming Griffs' love. Griffith is very glad to see him. There is a scene of the two men looking longingly at each other, and saying how sorry they were to fight. They get closer together and finally kiss. Now this is where Purvis drops the ball. All this longing, pent-up emotion between these two great looking men and all Purvis does is let them have a 3 second kiss. Not even-opened-mouth. With that much virile emotion, and their lips touching, they would have been overwhelmed by passion and that kiss should have been as if they were devouring each other; and then gone off into the woods. Some say they like that the movie did not go any further, but I say if you have two men, gay or straight acting like gay men, then they (Director) and actors should have enough guts to make it at least look as though they really meant it. i.e. 'The Velocity of Gary', 'Urbania', to name a few. You never saw them in bed , but, their characters were loving to each other and their kiss's were believable. Red Dirt took the gay movie and sent it back to the darkness!! I bought this DVD and will add it to my collection. But, I will think twice about buying another Tag Pervus and or Windstar video. Dont even look at the perk,''Peas and Corn''. A side show by Pervus.ciao yaaah69

    So much to like ...but it misses the mark!

    This is a wonderful film in many ways. The photography is lush and warm and gives you a real sense of place. The camera angles help build the feeling of being trapped in a small town where nothing ever really happens. The performances are all good to above average. The major problem is that it just takes too long for the story to develop. Too much time is spent setting this languid Misssissippi Delta scene. The meat and potaotes of the story get thrown at you like a news headline in the last twenty minutes of the film. That said, I will watch for more films by this director. Although this one had its faults it had much to recommend it. If I understand it correctly this is his first feature film. A very good first effort in many ways.
