Paranoid Park. 2007. USA/France. Written and directed by Gus Van Sant. 85 min.
Based on a young adult novel by Blake Nelson, Van Sant’s 2007 film takes him back to the Pacific Northwest of his earliest work. Gabe Nevins heads a mostly non-professional cast as a teenaged skateboarder profoundly traumatized when he witnesses a killing; with his sudden maturity, life with his cheerleader girlfriend will never be the same. Photographed by Christopher Doyle in a delirious swirl of video, Super 8, and 35mm. Courtesy IFC Films
