His latest effort, Prince Avalanche, is just a really fun movie. The weight of the film is the chemistry between Paul Rudd's character and Emile Hirsch's character, but Green leaves the door wide open for his always wonderful cinematography, low-pitched but energetic story and characters, and a really heartfelt underlying theme that makes Prince Avalanche a true gem. It's also pretty funny.
