Paranoid Park (2008)

Directed by Gus Van Sant

Gus Van Sant’s Paranoid Park (a Blake Nelson novel) is like watching a master paint--sketching out the story and adding more layers/details.  It is told through the perspective of a young skateboarder, who writes an account of the events that surround a death near a stretch of train tracks.

Happy birthday to Gus Van Sant, he turns 59 today. Restless is his new film (looks a bit glossy to me).
Here’s a more articulate Roger Ebert review and a A.V. Club's Book vs. Film comparison
For more excellent Christopher Doyle cinematography see Ondine.

Limited US theatrical release March of 2008 (IMDB). Film reviews in fifty words (2011).
