A remake of the 2011 Icelandic film Either Way, David Gordon Green's quirky character study tells the tale of Alvin and Lance, two polar opposites from the city who nurture an unlikely friendship while repainting traffic lines on a damaged country road during the summer of 1988. Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch, and Lance Le Gault star.~Jason Buchanan
Take notice fans of film and I being a disabled individual who watches 3 to 5 movies a day every day and such one of those fans that if you feel you have a great cinematographer and a great director and a great script take your budget and include Paul Rudd because that man can act his face off. People were hesitant before Ant-man and they were rewarded, people hesitated to rent or buy "Our idiot brother" and picked it up many years after release on sale at Best Buy.com and again they were rewarded, even people that were tired of Stiffler in movies took a chance on "Role Models" and it is now a cult classic with for outstanding co-leads however Rudd seems to stick out wherever he is inserted and so we were again treated to a gem. With Best Buy.com's price match guarantee there is no reason as I have logically stated for you to even begin to hesitate picking up one of these oddball offbeat semi indie titles that you again Will watch and love and at the end say man that guy for whatever reason makes any role he's in above and beyond what I could be at the cast any other actor or made that movie a five star movie instead of a three star movie. Trust his skills, trust this buys price match guarantee policy to guarantee the best price you're going to find, and find that you can trust me when you run across my review name attached to a movie because it's basically my job and I take it very serious therefore I hope that you learn to trust my reviews as much as you trust in Paul Rudd's acting ability
Prince Avalanche marks director David Gordon Green's return to his independent filmmaking roots. It's a most welcome return. The film is not as bleak as his first 4 features, but also lacks the juvenile stupidity of his more recent studio comedies. Here we get his delicate artistic style with a lot of humor that enables it to be become a culmination of all his work today. It's a great little film that features great performances and an incredible soundtrack by post rock band Explosions in the Sky with Green's frequent collaborator, childhood friend and Ola Podrida frontman David Wingo.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it was kind of blah. Rudd and Hirsch are brilliant though.
"Prince Avalanche" is a terrific indie film, deserving of a much wider audience than its received. Rudd and Hirsch are great, here, both displaying a good deal of range from previous roles. Hilarious and insightful, with beautiful photography.
