Those who understand the culture, those like Ratliff, know that Appalachia is a place thrumming with the eclectic, with the dark and the light. A complex place and people. Many have tried to capture it, but only a handful have succeeded. With Gone Boy, Brett Ratliff becomes one of the few. -Silas House
