Oh man. This movie is hilarious, original, and fun. Another one of 2013's never-really-seen-by-anyone greats.

From the review: "I always enjoy the prospect of an experimental indie passion project. Whether the final product is bad or good, you can't help but commend those involved for their unique attempt."

I commend the unique attempt, but the final product is bad.

From the review: "There is very little to the story of 'Prince Avalanche,' which is probably why it was admitted to the Sundance Film Festival in 2013."

Yes, there is very little to the story, which is probably why it... sucks.

You see the plot turns coming a mile away (even without painted lane markers).

Anyone paying slight attention to the road, will easily predict what will happen
with Paul Rudd's girlfriend, hand-delivering of the mail, Emile Hirsch's watch, etc.

When alcohol is presented on screen, guess what happens next... let's show
how funny and silly it is to get drunk and mess up our jobs. Hilarious.

Oh, let's throw in a needless, meaningless plot twist. Let's add...
(click on the spoiler, you do want this film spoiled for you, so you don't waste
time watching it.)
Spoiler
Ghosts! Ghosts had give you alcohol to get you drunk?! WTF!


Do you want to know how boring it is to paint lines on a road? Do you want to
now how boring it is to WATCH someone paint lines on a road.

My good deed is to keep you from going down this road.
