You have to bring a lot of yourself to this film if you want it to give something back, but the rewards are considerable.
The film absorbs elements of documentary and improvisation to produce a remarkably organic whole.
It's possible to keep one's feet on the ground and still appreciate the film's quiet verbal and visual poetry.
One of the most striking and affecting American independent films of the year, heralding the arrival of a formidable young talent in Green.
An exceptionally beautiful movie with some winning performances from a young and unproven cast,
George Washington is a mood piece first, and its triumph is in bottling up the intense feeling of early adolescence, and watching how tragedy transforms it.
Oh, you could analyze and debate and dissect the individual vignettes to smithereens, which is what makes it literary, I 'spect. But that would be too much like homework.
This morality tale represents the impressive feature debut by regional filmmaker David Gordon Green, a talent to watch
What makes Green's work such a thing of beauty is its relentless, yet altogether genuine, modesty.
Stylized to the point of poetry, David Gordon Green's impressive debut fuses the lyricism of Terence Malick with Harmony Korine's willingness to poke around the garbage-strewn landscape of the American underclass.
Poetic, patient and beautiful, it's an astoundingly mature film from 25 year old debutant director Green.
Lovingly photographed in warm sunlight and deep colors.
Has the feeling of a breathing issue of National Geographic as told threw the words of George Steinbeck and through the brush of Norman Rockwell.
Whether George Washington is a false dawn or the start of a whole new hope it remains one of the films of the year. Dream with it while you can.
A gorgeous, almost non-narrative portrait of kids in small-town America
Beautifully-photographed, lyrical film by debut director David Gordon Green -- definitely a talent to watch.
It's nicely filmed, especially in the places where kid's-eye views of machinery, fields, and junk yards are seen.
