Rich Hall - The Dirty South

Rich Hall sets his keen eye and acerbic wit on his homeland once again as he sifts truth from fiction in Hollywood's version of the southern states of the USA. Using specially shot interviews and featuring archive footage from classic movies such as Gone With The Wind, A Streetcar Named Desire and Deliverance, Rich discovers a South that is about so much more than just rednecks, racism and hillbillies. Four days left to watch it...


The heavy use of trailers instead of film clips, by the way, is down to the BBC refusing to cough up the dough for the rights.


  1. An excellent critique.

  2. I enjoyed it too. Very perceptive. Clever guy.
