Most of the film feels directionless... Yet, I can't deny that Prince Avalanche has a charm about it

Prince Avalanche certainly takes its time getting anywhere, but it's hard to complain too much when the company's good and the scenery is this nice.

An offbeat story with an unfocused director and narrative, Prince Avalanche becomes a mere lucid dream of cinematic enjoyment.

The film's gift is that it is utterly grounded and simultaneously otherworldly.

This is a hauntingly beautiful story of two men discovering themselves -- and their place in the world -- when they are at their loneliest and is worth the money just to witness the joyous drunken scene.

It's thanks largely to the simple, accessible chemistry between Rudd and Hirsh that film is, for the most part, a success.

Prince Avalanche is a slow burn and it does grow on you over time, but despite the central pair sharing undoubted chemistry, the movie's dialogue isn't as riveting as it needed to be and it inevitably feels a little flat.

This is a slow moving film, and not much happens, so it isn't for everyone, but I liked the characters and the performances, which were all right on the money.

The journey taken by Alvin and Lance has few plot points, but the film is remarkably gripping and rich.

A patience-testing two-hander about a pair of bickering oddballs spending an irritable summer painting traffic lines in the middle of fire-ravaged woodland.

An engaging variation of David Lynch's film The Straight Story (1999), this is about everything from humanity and landscapes to dungarees, fish, sleeping bags, fear of snakes, parenting worries and confessions affecting each character's dynamic.

Rudd and Hirsch have great chemistry, and Green gives them room to develop their characters with a languid pace and unobtrusive style.

Flashes of oddball invention can't quite lift Prince Avalanche out of its own meandering fog.

For this low-key comedy-drama, writer-director David Gordon Green harks back to the quirky charms of his 2003 gem All the Real Girls (rather than the overt silliness of Pineapple Express or The Sitter).

Engaging and beautifully shot, this is an enjoyably offbeat comedy with a stripped-down script and pair of pitch-perfect comic performances from Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.

Green has finally hit the sweet spot between his two cinematic modes - it's light, very funny, and gorgeously scored, by David Wingo and Explosions in the Sky.
