The Edies would be so thrilled to know that their stars continue to shine 25+ years after they let the Maysles brothers film their lives, fabulousness, squalor, and all. The documentary was recently selected for inclusion in the 2010 National Film Registry, alongside classics like The Exorcist and The Empire Strikes Back. Whereas the Beales’ family and community shunned their eccentricities, any self-respecting Southern town would have embraced such ever-loving-craziness with open arms. As for Albert Maysles (the only surviving brother), anyone who can rock seersucker atop Mt. Ararat has my respect.
