(Director David Gordon) Green combines the comic warmth and buddy film fun of Pineapple Express with the more laconic, musing quality of his early regional indies for a modest short story of a character piece.

With beautiful and interesting cinematography Prince Avalanche manages to put you out in the middle of nowhere with Alvin and Lance and their dysfunctional relationship.

There's some terrific stuff going on here, its minimalist bent and gorgeous photography combining to form a quietly immense dramedy that should age very well.

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.

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.

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.

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.

October 18, 2013
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).

October 17, 2013
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.

David Gordon Green returns to serious filmmaking with this Waiting for Godot for the All Tomorrow's Parties set.

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.

What emerges is a richly shot daydream whose vagaries will please the high-brow while frustrating the common hordes. But its general sensibility undoubtedly lies somewhere in the middle.
