RogerEbert.com — David Gordon Green

Primary_davidgordongreenprinceavalancheDavid Gordon Green’s latest film, “Prince Avalanche,” seamlessly blends the two seemingly contradictory artistic instincts within the writer-director: It has the unhurried pace and richly naturalistic aesthetic of his early, indie dramas with the comic banter and oddball characters of his later work. I very much enjoyed talking with him for a RogerEbert.com profile about the eclectic, prolific career he’s put together at just age 38.

This is the tree …

In MacArthur Park where I interviewed David Gordon Green yesterday. Well, not in it. And we weren’t doing what Seth Rogen and James Franco are doing. But we sat underneath it and had a nice chat about “Pineapple Express,” and his new film “Prince Avalanche,” and the eclectic career he’s put together at just 38. I look forward to sharing it with you on RogerEbert.com next week.
