    Prince Avalanche reconciles Green's twin modes into a whole no other director could have, deeply felt and light as laughter.

    Here's a funny, poignant oddball of a movie, existing on a galaxy far, far away from the likes of "Pacific Rim" or "World War Z" or anything whose computer-generated actions speak louder than words.

    While the core elements of this reluctant buddy movie could almost constitute a pared-down theater piece, the film breathes with real cinematic expansiveness. Green’s poetic observation skills are the key to that seeming contradiction.

    Prince Avalance is frequently funny in a subdued sort of way, but it’s primarily contemplative and eventually intimate.

    An unconventional, ultimately rather sweet buddy pic that’s an audiovisual treat.

    This sweetly eccentric and low-key buddy picture/bromance bears little resemblance to more well-known examples of the genre, such as "Lethal Weapon" or "Pineapple Express."
