Real-Life Redneck Noir

The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia - Boing Boing: "The documentary, directed by Julien Nitzberg, follows the legacy of the White family of Boone County, West Virginia. Their most famous living member is Jesco White, star of the 1991 cult documentary hit 'Dancing Outlaw' (on which Nitzberg was associate producer).

The Appalachian clan is notorious for criminal activity and reckless, larger-than-life characters. They tap-dance, shoot and stab people (including each other), and sell (and do) a lot of drugs. Think 'Sopranos' meets 'Coal Miner's Daughter.'"
