Mississippi Blues | Chicago Reader

Mississippi Blues

The deep south, explored by two congenial guides—American writer, director, editor, and raconteur Robert Parrish (The Purple Plain, The Wonderful Country) and French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier (A Sunday in the Country, Coup de torchon). They visit Faulkner's grave, look up blues musicians, examine changing racial attitudes, and listen to a lot of stories from a lot of different folks. Despite Parrish's presence (he was born in Columbus, Georgia), the point of view is resolutely European: it's a look at an alien culture that happens to be our own.
