Something 'bout the South

I was watching Mississippi Burning last night and it dawned on me that I really dig films that take place in the backwoods South. Granted, the only two movies I've seen based in the South are Mississippi Burning and The Apostle (both in the last year); it's just something about that slow camera pan and slow zoom, the ambient sound of crickets and ciccadas, the heat and the humidity and the slow burn of the plot that seem to leap out from the TV screen.

Films more like Sling Blade than The Dukes of Hazard.
