White Lightnin'


Synopsis

From international cult magazine Vice, the tale of Jesco “The Dancing Outlaw” White - part angel, part devil, part elvis Jesco White’s drugs of choice are gasoline and lighter fluid, plus the high he gets from performing his wild mountain dancing. But it’s reform school and a lunatic asylum that teach Jesco how to fight, and fight he does. Redneck exploitation is gorgeously reinvented as Jesco explodes from one burst of trailer-trashing rage to the next in this brutal and demented hillbilly saga.
