Film. Paranoid Park: Life’s all about choices. That’s definitely an obvious observation, but it's a truism often realized after you’ve made a horrible decision. One night Alex, a teen from the suburbs of Portland goes to Paranoid Park, an infamous skate park on the rough side of town – weird things happen and someone ends up dead. He decides to say nothing.
Paranoid Park is a brilliant examination of mood. The film’s naturalistic aesthetic and unstable, herky-jerky cinematography capture the alienation and pain one feels when they have a dark secret. Ultimately, Paranoid Park is about the possibility of personal redemption and its transformative effect.
