This atmospheric tour of the Deep South is both quirky and lovely.

The soundtrack, which includes Lee Sexton, The Handsome Family and others, is full of haunting Southern sounds; the camera work is inventive; and the interviews give you an off-center sense of place that equals at least one aspect of the South.
Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus is one of those movie-long non sequiturs where, though one thought does not logically follow another, we know what is meant.
A portrait of rural America as beautiful as it is bizarre.
Douglas has crafted a beautifully shot and edited film that treats its subjects fairly.
A hit-and-miss experience.
Decidedly strange, delightfully demented.
To say the film lingers in the mind like a nightmare is not to say it is unpleasant.
The music was fine; the tour was suspect.
It's a slow, ponderous film -- too slow and too ponderous, maybe -- but an intriguing one, often funny, sometimes unnerving, and altogether hard to forget.
Calling this a documentary is a bit of a misnomer, as Douglas splices staged music numbers into his travelogue footage to paint his surreal homage to the Deep South
The stories, usually told by white men, grow banal, and the richness of White's world increasingly seems limited in scope . . . seems racially myopic.
White says you can't really understand the South if its not in your blood, and he's probably right. But the film does an admirable job trying to give us a transfusion.
