David Gordon Green, one of America’s greatest living filmmakers, has returned a mere seven months after releasing Prince Avalanche to reward the world with yet another gem: the poetic and haunting Joe. Nicolas Cage is predictably strong as the titular character but it is newcomer Gary Poulter who delivers the film’s strongest performance. Sadly, he died on the streets of Austin shortly after the film wrapped but his legacy will live on with this film.
Davis Rivera is the recipient of the Marguerite & Otis Walter Scholarship for Excellence in Art History, founded the UArts Literary Society, recently completed a book on the last American auteur, and is working on two films to be released this spring. He lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
