Slooooow. I believe some of the tedium was intentional (i.e. these are mentally dim characters so everything they say or do is slow), but the scenes felt heavy handed and went on too long in trying to make sure that everyone watching would understand what the scene was trying to say. And there were far too many subplots that were either unnecessary or didn't go anywhere. The actors did a great job with what they had to work with, there were many excellent performances, and the main plot was clever, but the direction was poor. With a better director this might have been a good movie.
Finally, I think they owe the citizens of West Virginia an apology for making every character a stereotypical "southern country folk". All that was missing was banjo and some moonshine.
