David Gordon Green wanted to shoot, no matter what, the rarified landscape of a forest in Texas devastated by a fire. The problem? He needed a storyline. He finally found it in an Icelandic film that fit like a glove. In the middle of the summer of ‘88, Alvin and Lance have to undertake a boring job: repaint the lines on a highway in the middle of a highway in this desolate forest. Their relationship will give rise to both humor and melancholy, in a beautiful, funny road movie on foot, with phantasmagorical touches.
David Gordon Green
One of the most interesting directors in American independent film, he has developed his poetics and humor in movies like George Washington (00), Snow Angels (07), Pineapple Express (08) and Prince Avalanche (13).
