Contemporary Rural Crime Fantasias

or Blue-Collar Hardship-core,
or Economic Collapse-ploitation,

movies where portentous electric guitar noodling probably soundtracks a scene of a guy staring at a gun or pile of money in a dark room, or a guy sitting in a car drinking cut against a guy from a bank telling him his house has been foreclosed on or something.
