2008. USA. Directed by Gus Van Sant. Screenplay by Van Sant, based on the novel by Blake Nelson. With Gabe Nevins, Taylor Momsen, Jake Miller, Dan Liu. A stunning example of Van Sant’s languid visual virtuosity, Paranoid Park was awarded the 60th Anniversary Special Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Cast from an open call on MySpace, the film is as much an ode to skateboarding culture in Portland, Oregon, as it is a masterful literary adaptation. Courtesy IFC Films 84 min.
