Movie Info

This documentary offers a glimpse inside the lives of several individuals -- mainly former shrimp workers -- all residing in a Florida trailer park, all with very strange talents and habits. The community's leader is Beanie Andrew, an eccentric man who boasts about his decades-long career as a writer, actor, singer and dancer. Other community members, who unite to create a homespun horror film, include a yodeling country singer and a hot-tempered guitarist.

Critic Reviews for Mule Skinner Blues

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (4)

  • Though director Earnhart has yet to find the ironic distance, sharp interviewing techniques or creative editing of documentarians like Chris Smith ... and Errol Morris ... Mule Skinner Blues suggests he is on the right track.

  • As amusing as it often is, it is even more affectionate.

    May 2, 2002 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The charms of willful eccentricity, at least as evidenced by this latest cinematic essay, are beginning to wear a bit thin.

  • Watching Beanie and his gang put together his slasher video from spare parts and borrowed materials is as much fun as it must have been for them to make it.

  • Boisterous and daft documentary.

    April 12, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • It might be tempting to regard Mr. Andrew and his collaborators as oddballs, but Mr. Earnhart's quizzical, charming movie allows us to see them, finally, as artists.
