    Tobacco Road

    ★★★★½

    if Beckett made The Road, or cormac mccarthy made The Bed Sitting Room. weird, bleak, post-apocalyptic, absolutely deranged, brutal, magnificent. the most subversive use of hymn singing ive ever seen in a movie. someone on here described george lucas as a combination of Eisenstein + Walt Disney, well thats this movie too. it would make such a great double bill with The Old and the New. in fact this film makes the case for real subsumption even better. the more…
