Critic Review - Boston Herald

At best a bit of indie-film eye candy, at worst an art-house minstrel show...

As off base a review as I have ever read. I'm sure you're a nice guy, just have never gotten out of the city. As odd as it may seem, the Beast was spot on. I know each of these people, and I know the trailer on stilts, and I've seen boats or houses or rooms made out of discarded pickup trucks. The bar was Elsies tavern and oh that boiled shrimp on a table. It may seem like a minstrel show to some folks, but to others, it's the best of times while the worst of time.
