“This film is a phenomenon. One of my favorite documentaries of all time.” —Quentin Tarantino

Before the dominance of reality television, this documentary about a competition to win a hardbody truck in a small Texas town is one of the most enduring and charming portraits of Southern life during the mid-90s. It spawned a Broadway musical and a feature screenplay from acclaimed director Robert Altman.
