Jesco The Dancing Outlaw

I lent my copy of "Jesco The Dancing Outlaw" to one of my co-workers, who is Russian. Prior to viewing this documentary, I don't think he was very familiar with the extreme rural culture in America. Some might call it hillbilly culture. We're not talking Dukes of Hazzard, we're talking deep mountain culture. Anyway, he returned the tape today. I asked him how he liked it and he was obviously a little taken aback by the way the people in the documentary llived. One of his comments summed it up perfectly:

It's like a fairy tale, only backwards. This time, Cinderella doesn't win.
