Crazy in Alabama

  • Now where DID I leave his head this time?

A backwoods Alabama boy named Peejoe - short for Peter Joseph- gets a quick education in grown-up matters like freedom and justice in 1965. The catalyst is an unlikely source - his glamorous, eccentric Aunt Lucille, who escapes from her abusive husband and takes off for Hollywood to pursue her dreams of TV stardom. The film is set against the black consciousness movement of the time, and also explores why some deliberate murderers are likeable and other accidental ones are not.

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Interesting movie. The film is more character-driven than plot driven, and provides some insights into the culture and mindset of southern folks at the time. It also explores the common perception of justice.
