This Sunday I plan on catching David Gordon Green's latest film SNOW ANGELS, which stars Sam Rockwell, Kate Beckinsale, and Nicky Katt. Green, the brilliant, Malick-esque director of GEORGE WASHINGTON, ALL THE REAL GIRLS, and UNDERTOW, is one of my favorite up and coming filmmakers. SNOW ANGELS is a dark drama about a group of people living in a small town and how a violent incident changes their lives. Green will also have a film coming out this August--the Judd Apatow (40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN, KNOCKED UP) collaboration THE PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, a stoner action-comedy which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco. Quite the change of pace for Green right there. SNOW ANGELS has been met with generally great reviews, with a 71% overall at Rottentomatoes, and 83% from the "cream of the crop."
Also, I should be getting last years quirky Michael Douglas comedy THE KING OF CALIFORNIA from nextflix tomorrow; looking forward to that one.
