- Alternate Character Interpretation:
- Is the government a good or bad thing in these movies since they're often after genuinely horrible crooks but mistreat ordinary citizens for Felony Misdemeanor activity.
- Is Bama a Fallen Hero who was once like Gator or is he a Complete Monster? Gator seems shocked that he's become such a terrible person since their childhood but everything indicates that he's a Sadist who absolutely loves all the horrible things he does and always has.
- Squick: Lou talking about how she's been sexually active since she was nine.
- Values Dissonance: Part of this is Deliberate Values Dissonance but the government goes to elaborate lengths to shut down anyone involved in moonshining. It's treated as equivalent to drug smuggling and worth federal prison time.
YMMV / White Lightning
