United States | 2013 | David Gordon Green
Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch star in the new film from the director of George Washington, All the Real Girls, and Pineapple Express. Hailed as a return to form for David Gordon Green, it’s a minimalist, poetic comedy, set during the late 1980s, about a pair of mismatched working men—a self-important, finicky loner (Rudd) and a more relaxed, much younger party animal (Hirsch). The two of them paint lines and install markers on an isolated stretch of highway in a remote, burned-out corner of Texas. The gorgeous color cinematography is by Green’s usual collaborator, Tim Orr. “A work of eccentric but often profound beauty…Weird and wonderful, a refreshing movie that looks and sounds only like itself. That old Green magic, it seems, is back.” -Washington Post.
