Wow. Ok, Carthage is my hometown, and Linklater definitely has it pegged. Matthew McConaughey IS Danny Buck Davison, just 20 years younger and probably 100 pounds or so lighter. This town is psychotic in its redneck ways and the "good ol' boy system", so much so that most of the town was ready to let Bernie Tiede get off scott free for shooting an old women in the back with a rifle, just because the town loved Bernie and hated Marjorie Nugent, the rich old millionaire widow recluse. I knew Bernie personally, was friends with him somewhat, and he was the nicest, most generous, helpful guy you could ever meet. But unlike the rest of Carthage I thought he should fuckin' fry for what he did. I mean he stole an old lady's money and shot her in the back, for chrissakes.
