This is the Last Dam Run of Likker I’ll Ever Make 

Popcorn Sutton is the star here!

“This Is The Last Dam Run Of Likker I’ll Ever Make” dives into legendary moonshiner Popcorn Sutton.

This Popcorn doc is my favorite (but check out “The Best 5 Documentaries on Popcorn Sutton” because #2 through 4 are fun as heck too!)

This doc is raw, uncut, like a real-life “Goodfellas,” minus the mob but with all the anti-hero charm.

Sutton is the Michael Jordan of moonshining, showing off skills and secrets with a swagger that’s half James Dean, half Johnny Cash.

The film feels like a time capsule, a snapshot of a fading Americana, akin to Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” album.

The storytelling is straightforward, no Hollywood glitter, reminiscent of classic John Wayne westerns – it’s the man and his mission.

It’s a must-watch for those who love underdog stories, a tribute to a man who lived by his own rules, a true moonshine maestro.
