David Gordon Green is an American filmmaker.
His films, which are usually coming of age tales set in small rural towns, have been categorized as belonging to the Southern Gothic tradition pioneered by such writers as William Faulkner. Green’s dialog often has an obtuse, semi-poetic quality, reminiscent of Faulkner’s writing.
He made the two short films “Pleasant Grove” and “Physical Pinball”, at the North Carolina School of the Arts prior to his feature film debut in 2000, the critically-acclaimed “George Washington”, which he both wrote and directed. He followed in 2003 with “All the Real Girls” and “Undertow” in 2004. In 2007, “Snow Angels”, his first film created from a screenplay rather than his own writing, was adapted from a Stewart O’Nan novel.
“Goat”, a screenplay adapted by Green from the Brad Land memoir, is currently in production. “The Pineapple Express” is currently in pre-production for release in 2008.
