Synopsis

An unsolved murder at Portland’s infamous Paranoid skateboard park brings detectives to a local high school, propelling a young skater into a moral odyssey where he must not only deal with the pain and disconnect of adolescence, but also the consequences of his own actions.

Our take

Following Elephant and Last Days, Gus Van Sant returned to Cannes with this dreamlike tale of guilt and loneliness in suburbia. Shot by Christopher Doyle, the legendary DP best known for his work with Wong Kar Wai, Paranoid Park is a rare, haunting immersion into youth and its deluge of emotions.
