Looks about as good as I’m expecting this movie to be. Which isn’t much.
What do you think of David Gordon Green in general?
My introduction to him was The Sitter, which nearly made me swear him off forever. I’ve seen a few of his movies since, and his more “genre” efforts are where I lose interest in him. Especially troubling when he’s matched to a franchise I generally don’t like (and I’m finding I don’t find *icon* slasher villains scary).

David Gordon Green has been doing a lot of interviews, he always comes off as pretty cool and level, someone to get a beer with. Here's an interesting interview from today with a joke-mention of Manglehorn at the end (though maybe not-- he said a few years ago that he was "already writing the next one for Al" )
DGG intentionally or not likes to work in threes... his stoner comedies Pineapple Express/Your Highness/The Sitter, followed by his Texas trilogy on, his words, "the strange conflicts of masculinity" - Prince Avalanche/Joe/Manglehorn. He was, before Halloween, supposed to do that Newsflash movie which would've been his third true-story in a row, and now these horrors.
Still waiting on that next one for Pacino he mentioned...
