This type of family scares the crap out of me, but yet so revealing of rural America in many ways. I wish I could put a blanket of education on this family. Ugh. Interesting documentary.

You see Johnny Knoxville's name attached, and you wonder. however i grew up in Va near WV, and tales of the Whites reached even my quiet DC suburb. A family too crazy to be fake, members too vivid to be fiction. Simply enthralling. In a white trash way.

This practically plays out like a scripted dark comedy. However, it is a documentary about an outlaw family from West Virginia. Following the lives of various members of the family through various dramas over the course of a year. I laughed alot. Interesting and engaging. The special features are extensive and have a great entertainment value beyond the film itself.
