JOE BOB BRIGGS: HOW REDNECKS SAVED HOLLYWOOD
Job Bob Briggs: How Rednecks Saved Hollywood, Dir. Joe Bob Briggs, USA, 120 MIN. 2019
As if he were born in the backseat of a car at a Texas drive-in movie theater, Joe Bob Briggs was brought into this world to elucidate the importance of low brow B-movies. First hitting the airwaves in 1986 on The Movie Channel, Job Bob was a different sort of horror host. Avoiding the ghoulish and gothic tropes, he embraced his Texas roots and brought a good ol boy charm to the proceedings.
After 10 years at The Movie Channel, Job Bob drove his RV over to TNTs MonsterVision and continued his hillbilly hijinks for another four years, until the sun set over the drive-in there. Come 2018, the projector was fired up once again and Job Bob returned for The Last Drive-In on Shudder. Originally intended to be a one-off event, Job Bobs resurrection proved so popular that The Last Drive-In was brought back for several other one-off events and then, its only series.
There are two things that Joe Bob is well versed in: movies and rednecks. So its no surprise that he combined them into a one-man show, HOW REDNECKS SAVED HOLLYWOOD.
REDNECKS is a hilarious, informative, moonshine-soaked journey of the Redneck through cinema history, from the dawn of silent films to the modern era. Featuring movie clips and Joe Bobs always witting analysisincluding the existential difference between Forrest Gump and Sling Bladeyoure in for a real treat. -James Branscome
