Paranoid Park

- Gus Van Sant

Genre - Drama

This is a delicate and gracefully filmed lamentation on the disaffected, indifferent youth of America. Totally immersed in his own world, the leading character is a kid who exudes a disturbing air of nonchalance and appears to be unfazed by life itself. Based on a Blake Nelson novel, it is also in essence a murder mystery. The cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Rain Kathy Li embraces the movie like warm solace and the soundtrack is bizarrely tempting.

3.5 STARS!
