The movies, Quick Flick Critique: Get Low

Review of a film which has had time to season five years, and thus warrants at first look. With super performances by Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black, among others. Recommended. For even more than that it is about around here, close by in East Tennessee, even though it was filmed entirely in Georgia, according the the Wikipedia Entry, Get Low (film).

Adair Countians Mike Voss of Fairplay and Gerry Holt, Little Cake, reviewed a very recent film (2009 - movies ought to be out five years before watching), Get Low, at the coffee house this past week week, giving the film a 100% endorsement. They said it was Robert Duvall at his best, and makes one have a complete new respect for Bill Murray. It's a Depression era film about a hermit (Duvall) in Tennnessee.

It's roughly based on the story of a real life character, detailed at On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand, the story Uncle Bush, Felix Bushaloo Breazeale of Roane County Tennessee, and an actual funeral for a man not yet dead. The movie is currently on Netflix. The trailer for the film can be seen at IMBD: Trailer, Get Low. The crowd at the funeral was huge. A trip to the site is right close to another huge East Tennesse event, The Scopes trial at Dayton, Rhea County, TN. Having watched one third of the show and 100% of the trailer, I agree with Holt & Voss, and recommend it for your enjoyment.
