It's quite mesmerizing to watch these two lost souls trade in their last gasp at salvation for a bottle of cheap hooch and a noseful of cocaine.
Technically crude but dramatically riveting.
Nothing is really explained. You are just plunked into the middle of this infinitely sullen slice of life. It isn't long before the characters' boredom and accumulated hostility begin to seep into you.
Because he has little to say about the relationship between human potential and behavior beyond the pointedly altered adage, Horton's themes are as limited as the horizons of his characters.
Abetted by its zero-budget look and feel, the film attains the dirty, hyperrealism of a reality based cop show, but with a surprising touch of quiet compassion.
'100 Proof' in one word: "Disturbing." There seemed to be unfinished business in this movie that didn't get resolved. It didn't delve into the relationship between Rae and Carla. The ending raised more questions and had no answers to what happened after the shootings and what happened to Rae's father. I can see how suffering all the physical and mental abuse from her father would drive Rae over the edge but I felt it wasn't explained as thoroughly as it should have been. With that said, I'll admit that I had my reservations about watching this movie, mainly because of Jim Varney's role as an abusive, incestuous father. Curiosity won over my hesitation and I'm glad it did. Mr. Varney was truly the most gifted, multi-faceted actor I've ever had the privilege of watching. While he wasn't the star of the show and only had a small part, he completely outshone the other stars. His powerful on screen presence overshadowed Pamela and Tara's characters. With only a small role, he was able to steal the entire movie right out from under them. He completely blew me away with this role. To go from that affable, lovable funny man, 'Ernest P. Worrell' to Rae's father and every other character in between, and to do it so proficiently, is a rare talent indeed. If you grew up with Ernest P. Worrell, as I did, believe me, you will see absolutely no hint of that humble hayseed in this movie. How Hollywood pigeon-holed him into Ernest is beyond me. It's too bad it took them so long to remove the 'Ernest Blinders'. If Varney were alive today, you can bet he'd be acting circles around these so-called big name celebrities.
