All the Real Girls must be recognized as one of the all-time great films.

Mike G. just told me he watched All the Real Girls for the first time. I’ve been telling anybody who will listen that it’s a genuine classic of cinema. Hopefully Danny McBride‘s newfound popularity (watch Eastbound and Down on HBO) will start landing it in a few more DVD queues. Director David Gordon Green is, strangely, making a bigger mark in comedy at the moment, but 2007’s Snow Angels shows that he’s still a serious force as a dramatic director.

Warning to all men: You have never seen a film that portrays real male heartbreak more devastatingly. Also, showing this movie to a girl you are currently dating may mark the point where she starts telling herself it may be time to move on. This is a movie gets inside the DNA of the human heart, and it may change you profoundly without your knowledge or permission.
