The Los Angeles Times has an article about the "George Washington" director's new film, "All The Real Girls," showing at Sundance.

With his slow, quiet style, Green is at the opposite pole from what he calls the "1980s MTV/Jerry Bruckheimer, get-it-going, keep-it-moving" style of filmmaking. "When I think of the movies I like, I think of a place, places where things happen. Rather than have a story dictate to and motivate characters, I prefer having characters motivate their actions and determine the story."

George Washington is just an incredible film in every sense of the word.

All The Real Girls is good, but not as good as Green's debut. I've got a review of it on my website...www.road-dog-productions.com

According to Variety, David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls) will direct Dermot Mulroney, Josh Lucas and Jamie Bell in Undertow for New York-based production company ContentFilm. Shooting is set to start in April in and around Savannah, Ga.

The film, written by Joe Conway and Green, is set in a small town in the South and concerns a father (Mulroney) whose family life is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of his volatile brother (Lucas), driving the former's eldest son (Bell) to run away from home, taking his younger brother with him.

Green also is attached to Miramax's A Confederacy of Dunces, adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning cult novel by John Kennedy Toole. While that film previously was slated for a spring start in New Orleans, Miramax confirms that the long-in-development project now has been pushed back to the fall.

The Undertow, that sounds cool. I like that idea a lot. This should give me some time to read A Confederacy of Dunces before it is adapted by that genius of a filmmaker, David Gordon Green. I still have to see what I anticpate to be the best movie of 2003, All the Real Girls. I don't get it till April.

Oh, I just realized who Josh Lucas is! He's really cool! He's that guy from Sweet Home Alabama. He's made for a freaking David Gordon Green movie, I'm looking forward to it even more now. Thanks for the news by the way Macguffin, amazing stuff man.

DGG is working hard it sounds like. That's a good thing, I love when great filmmaker's put out one great film after another.

I know, I know, there's something fucking wrong with my computer or something. I have to sign in everytime I post. Literally, once I post, I view my post, there is no edit option, it's already signed me off. It doesn't stay signed in for more than 5 seconds. The cookies are all fucked up or something. Sorry about that.

Oh, you suck but I'm happy for you anyway...I would love to hear what you think of it, PM me with a long review as soon as possible and I'll appreciate the fuck out of it! Please! Please, please please do that! Make it very long too...no spoilers though...don't tell me too much about the plot...just cool scenes and stuff like that.

Three questions...where are you seeing it?...don't you just love George Washington?....don't you just love Zooey Deschanel?

So....awesome, I'll be looking forward to reading that review man, don't let me down...remember...I have to wait till April 4th to see it and it's my most anticipated movie of the year, seriously, it would really make my day if you would do that for me, write it as soon as possible and remember....make it fucking huge. Thank you very much. I'll never ask you for anything again (this year), if you do this. It's pretty early in the year too.

Oh my god...how cool is that! You know, sometimes I really like Ebert, he's a cool guy, I mean, sometimes he just goes a little "Harry Knowles" on me and I don't like that...but seriously, most of the time...he's very very cool.

Man, that scene in the bowling alley sounds like fucking heaven, I read about that in a few other places. I can't wait to see that scene.
