DAVID GORDON

GREEN

In His Own Words.





"He's the real deal. He's an artist. He looks at all of this as some kind of shared experience."

- Paul Rudd, Actor, on working with David


            "A Writer and Director of rare grace and talent."

                 - Rolling Stone

Stronger.


"Everyone had a voice in it. I am not a director who says, “This is how it is, and this is where the shot is.” I try and make it a playful place and to make [the process] as authentic as possible."

- David Gordon Green, Filmmaker Magazine

"A profound, Oscar-worthy gem."

- The Atlantic

"Oscar-worthy; a refreshingly unconventional style."

- The Guardian


Television.

Vice Principals.




Green teamed up with his college buddies / frequent collaborators Danny McBride and Jody Hill to create HBO's dark comedy Vice Principals. As a Director and Executive Producer, David helps color the offbeat and hilarious world of the series.

"One of the funniest comedies of the year."

- Paste Magazine

Red Oaks.





The New York Times calls Amazon's Red Oaks "undeniably charming", a period piece that perfectly blends David's penchant for rich nostalgia with his toned comedic voice. 

"A delightful and whip-smart comedy."

- Indiewire

Eastbound & Down.





David's first collaboration with HBO helmed a series unlike anything the network had seen before. A dark comedy with shades of southern gothic, Eastbound & Down quickly became a cult hit and picked up a WGA nomination for Episodic Comedy.

Eastbound & Down is a winner about a real loser.

- Entertainment Weekly

Texas Trilogy.

Prince Avalanche.




"One of the most intriguing and thoughtful American films of the year."

- Time Out

Manglehorn.




"The quirky visual poetry eventually proceeds to work its magic, paving the way for an unexpected final act that cracks open a long-shuttered door on the life of a man who was, in his own words, 'losing hope in tomorrow'."

- Los Angeles Times

Joe.





"A miserably perfect portrait of a culture on the brink of collapse."

- Village Voice
