More wild than wonderful, the Whites are a sprawling, brawling clan of self-described rednecks whose status as “Appalachian royalty” derives from their violence, their low-level criminality, their abuse of prescription drugs, and the fact that their late patriarch, D. Ray, originated a hillbilly variant of tap dancing. Julien Nitzberg’s gleefully lowbrow doc (produced for MTV by Jackass star Johnny Knoxville) shares a lot of DNA with COPS and The Jerry Springer Show, but it’s undeniably riveting. The main attractions are the White women—hard-faced, foghorn-voiced skanks who make even the convicts and gas huffers among the menfolk look cuddly. You may not like this, but you won’t forget it. 86 min.
