PG-13 | | Drama, Mystery
A movie spun out of equal parts folk tale, fable and real-life legend about the mysterious, 1930s Tennessee hermit who famously threw his own rollicking funeral party... while he was still alive.
When Felix is asked how he managed to live forty years all by himself, Felix replies "The first thirty eight are the hardest". He says this thirty eight minutes into the film.
Rev. Gus Horton:
Good morning, sir.
Felix Bush: It's a hard life if you can't read.
Rev. Gus Horton: Pardon?
When Frank and Buddy are getting a photograph made of Felix, right before the camera shutter is tripped, the photographer bumps the view camera and it becomes aimed in a slightly different direction. The photographer fails to re-frame the shot which would never happen while using a view camera.
