White Lightnin' (2009)

Directed by: Dominic Murphy


This is a movie loosely, very loosley based on the infamous Jesco White. It starts out showin off his huffin and drug abuse. Its full of some pretty cool violence, mostly self mutilation. I question a lot of it, but then again it is a movie not a documentary. Almost seems like the only true parts are based off of the Dancing Outlaw series, but who knows how they came across some of the info. I think the weirdest thing is that this is a movie made in the Uk. I thought Jesco was mainly a local hero and had no idea that he is world famous!

The whole part how his father died is wrong, and i really doubt he spent that much time in mental health wards. It showed too much fiction and not much of the truth. I can understand changing names and stuff like that. may be just me but i dont know how people can get away with adding that to the story while hes still alive.

If it wasnt a movie "about" Jesco, and instead about a random person i would love it. It was shot good and had a real creep factor to it but i already know too much for it to seem real and not a complete work of fiction. Overall it was cool to see but i would prefer a life story in the true nature.



This would be super cool to see....Jesco dancing to Hank3


I still havent seen the Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia yet! I am really looking forward to it though. Im a huge Jesco Fan and have even seen him live before. So i hope it is as good as it seems.
