September 26, 2002
A gracious sleepwalk of a movie that could have used a firmer strut.
August 27, 2002
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.

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.

July 31, 2001
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.
July 30, 2001
The sort of picture that murkily suggests all sorts of deep meanings because it's fundamentally incoherent.

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.
