So, when I saw snake handling and Walton Goggins together, I didn't expect nuance.  So color me surprised.  Aside from a major implausibility, this is a respectable directing/feature writing debut.  And it transcends its sensational setting to offer some layered considerations on patriarchy and parenthood within a fundamentalist setting.  Olivia Colman is splendid as usual, but Walton Goggins dials down the Southern Gothic here to deliver an understated performance that humanizes what could've been a unidimensional, villainous character.

Here's my full review: https://www.patheos.com/blogs/secularcinephile/2019/08/them-that-follow-snake-handling-patriarchy-and-parenthood-in-fundamentalist-appalachia/

...and the title is Them That Follow.  Ken, when you have a moment, would you mind amending the title of this thread?

Maybe...I looked on my panel and didn't see it as an option, but as Jessica and my kids will attest, I'm not always the most observant chap.

I only recently learned how to rename a topic title as moderator/admin. It's not intuitive, as it doesn't appear in the panel options. I'll message you how to do it.
