Prince Avalanche – film review

Prince Avalanche has Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch camping in somewhere, America, painting yellow lines along a stretch of remote road. Actors lust after these talky two-hander parts – on the face of it greater than just character-sketch roles – because they feel stage-like. The monologues about life back in the city, or women and sex, might take on a more caustic and tetchy note up close and in person. On screen it’s cute, but thin.
