Close Encounters of the Red Neck Kind

If Steven Spielberg got hammered at Lynyrd Skynrd concert and did a hasty re-write of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the film might have turned out something like this. Marc Bullard has mashed up the musical elements of the decidedly unmusical - and iconic - 1970's films Close Encounters and Deliverance. "Dueling Banjos" representing the musical bridge between humanity and an alien life form seems like a solid idea to me. I particularly like the inclusion of the Dukes of Hazzard's General Lee's horn to add another level of the southern-fried hillbilly vibe.
