Written and directed by Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher
Youâ€™ve got one night–Friday, November 9–to catch Dirty Country at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. And if you like raunchy humor, you should catch it.
Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher of Found Footage Fame (or Found Footage obscurity) built this documentary around Larry Pierce, a small-town factory worker with a side job writing and recording joyfully obscene country western songs. He infuses his songs–with titles like â€œYou Make My Peter Stand Upâ€ and â€œI Like to Fuckâ€–with catchy tunes, clever rhymes, a real joy of sex, and whatâ€™s clearly a deep and romantic love for his wife. The movie takes him through bad times (he lost his job while the documentary was in production) and good ones (his first real concert), and introduces us to other singers specializing in dirty music.
I rarely wish a film was longer, but Dirty Country could really have used more concert footage. Good, clean, dirty fun.
