A Weekend for Bromance

     “The Wedding Ringer” is Hollywood’s attempt to co-opt the traditional wedding comedy by way of the bromance. Instead of a romance where groom-to-be and bride-to-be endure a series of hijinks on their way to rekindling why they’re getting married in the first place, the opposite is at play here. 620 more words

Film Favorites: George Washington

Its not a new point to discuss David Gordon Green’s sellout hackwork middle career stage, but his recent “return to his roots” phase is fresher still and only recently of this Earth; thus, it provides a far more welcome object of inquiry. 1,251 more words

Joe - David Gordon Green (2014)

David Gordon green serves up a slice of life as grim and unappetising as a plate of cold horse shit. And there’s its charm. It’s set in one of those white-trash-hell nowhere communities where the only thing that keeps people going is the embrace of intoxication or the tantalising excitement of a violent death. 190 more words

Review: Joe

Joe is a return to maturity for director David Gordon Green, although this is not necessarily the same as a  return to full form. Recently, he set his sights on a duo of pot-addled comedies centering a drug most appropriate for viewing Gordon Green’s earlier art films (the first of the two also aped the visual style of Green’s poetic examinations of humanity to fascinating effect), followed by an even more insipid comedy that had nothing to do with weed. 747 more words
