Early short from David Gordon Green
19 November 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

This short student film was made circa 1997 when David Gordon Green was about 21 or 22. The cinematography is poor but the script, acting, and direction are all indicative of greatness to come, specifically in the form of "George Washington", a film not dissimilar to "Pleasant Grove" in most ways. The writing suffers from a lack of polish and maturity, and while sections of the script are outstanding it doesn't become a satisfying film by the end. Still, at 15 minutes in length "Pleasant Grove" is an interesting enough student short, which isn't of much interest to people who dislike David Gordon Green, but fans of his will want to see this (and probably have already done so).

6/10
