This movie gets a great deal of undue and overly harsh criticism for the perhaps indelicate handling of its controversial subject matter. I've seen the film, all the way through, maybe 4 or 5 times. I supported the film financially when it was released in that "straight to DVD" or whatever way that it was released. I remember it being advertised by my television provider at the time so I had ordered/rented it from them. I thought it was pretty good. I didn't see anything "wrong" with it. It was a bit 'off kilter' at some points, that's for sure. But I enjoyed that sort of unpredictable quirkiness, if you will. The film leaves a bad taste in my mouth about these cork-asses, so called, critics more than anything else. How much utter garbage does Hollywood put out on a daily basis? Beyond movies, television is a total joke. The medium itself has an inherent predilection to being a mediocre waste in the best case scenario. Now even movies are the suck. There's nothing inherit to that medium which is crippling. In fact the opposite is true. So why does, probably, 99% of everything coming out of Hollywood just suck miserably, so miserably? Compare Hick to that stuff and what you have is a masterpiece, perhaps not of the craft of film making or as a production, but as a story. It was an enjoyable film.
Luli, you're doomed!
