Watching this movie is hell
Great actors, but great country singers/writers (Owens and Yoakum) should stick to country music. This movie is not worth 99 cents or 9 cents. Sorry. I really wanted to like it. I love Dwight Yoakum, but I don't like this movie. It's not even bad good. It's just bad. Reasons to watch this movie: skinny Vince Vaughn and Billy Bob Thorton in an awful wig. Awful. Awful.
An amazing movie beyond the grasp of Americas I.Q.
This movie is what I would consider the first existential Western I've ever seen. The only negative thing this movie is guilty of is far to small of a budget, just listen to the door knocks throughout the film. Most Americans wont get this movie anymore then they could grasp I <3 Huckabees. After all these are the people that re-elected George Bush and watch the Kardashians because they find them interesting. This movie is for out of the box thinkers who pay enough attention to detail hence the title: South of Heaven West of Hell. Where would that be? That would be Purgatory. That's right every character in this movie is dead. Hello World! Know that little gem of a information going into this movie and it will open up doors of perception you didn't know existed.
The symbolism in this movie is deep and well thought out. The style of cinematography is brilliant and beautiful. The cryptic occult and religious undertones are brilliant genius. This movie wasn't made for the status quo, it was made for people who are truly independent non linear thinkers. I hope some slick producer like Quentin Tarantino does this movie again in 20 years with a fat budget to give this film it's true due.
This is not Dwight Yoakam's best acting performance, but the man was wearing a lot of hats as a writer, Director and Star in this film. It was his creation and it's fantastic for those of us who can grasp it. Vince Vaughn's character Taylor Henry is downright Scary, Paul Herman is in a form never seen before in anything he's ever done. Bridget Fonds is beautiful and adds contrast and Billy Bob Thornton seems to be the only person who knows not only his charter but everyone else is dead. Dwight Yoakam sums it up in near the last seen of the movie, "I don't know if I'm certain of my existence only my intentions ". I wish I could give this film 6 stars, one of the best thought provoking movies I have seen in years!
