Paranoid Park

A teenage skateboarder's life begins to fray after he is involved in the accidental death of a security guard.

Director Gus Van Sant superbly captures the ins and outs of teenage life in Paranoid Park, a quietly devastating portrait of a young man living with guilt and anxiety. The film won one Independent Spirit Award, two Boston Society of Film Critics awards and the Cannes Film Festival's special 60th anniversary prize.

'Even something as modest as Paranoid Park manages to reflect Van Sant's greatest strengths as an artist: his seemingly limitless fluency with his chosen medium and his willingness to tell even the oldest stories in bold new ways.' Washington Post

'Captures the essence of high school life better than most teen movies could ever dream.' From the Front Row

'This is easily Van Sant's most satisfying film of his recent youth alienation pictures.' The List
