A gracious sleepwalk of a movie that could have used a firmer strut.

Entertainment Today

Combines the earthy lyricism of Terrence Malick with the muted eccentricities of a young David Lynch... a [gorgeous], quietly idealistic tale of adolescent soul-searching.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

It looks unusually good for an indie (it was shot in 35mm and widescreen) and it has some wonderfully naturalistic scenes.

With a kind of eerie beauty and simplicity, David Gordon Green captures a slice of American life in this truly original film.

A shockingly powerful film and, better yet, manages to do so in under 90 minutes.

Guardian

On the basis of this stunningly impressive feature debut, [director Green] is set to become a Terrence Malick for the 21st century, reviving the values of artistry and reflectiveness in American indie cinema.

You want to like the film more, but, unfortunately, it just moves too slowly, not enough happens and the characters just don't have enough interesting or original things to say.

An abstract, symbolic title is perfect for such an abstract, symbolic movie.

Jam! Movies

Less a traditional movie than a lyrical photo essay of fictional characters in a world so real it's almost surreal, George Washington deserves to be seen simply because it's not quite like anything that's come before.

The sort of picture that murkily suggests all sorts of deep meanings because it's fundamentally incoherent.

A work of uncommon beauty and intelligence, one that is smart enough to trust its characters and the technical contributions of its crew.

Q Network Film Desk

The film's composition is nearly flawless, with the filmmakers juxtaposing the lush, Southern landscape with the rusted, twisted remains of industrial parks and warehouses that have been deserted and forgotten.
