Gus Van Sant
FRA, USA 2007
85 min

In Paranoid Park, Gus Van Sant enters the world of high school kids just as he did in Elephant, achieving this time a much sharper, more focused portrait of how these rapidly maturing young people act, think, speak and behave. Based on a novel by Blake Nelson, Van Sant smartly tells the story in a nonlinear form, the way a frightened kid remembers an incident that will haunt him the rest of his life. As he thinks back and tries to put things down on paper so he can make sense of the whole mess, the story tumbles out in images, evasive conversations and interrupted scenes. Van Sant has made one of his best movies yet, recapturing the magic of his fine earlier works such as Mala Noche and Drugstore Cowboy. (Kirk Honeycutt)
