David Gordon Green United States, 2013

msmichel's rating of the film Joe

David Gordon Green made one of the best debut films of the past fifteen years in 2000 (George Washington) and unfortunately has never matched that hint of genius since. "Joe" has been reported as a return to form after floundering making juvenile humour films like the dreadful "your highness", but unfortunately it too flounders. Tye Sheridan is marvelous here as is the father from hell but the script is weak.
