anarresti's rating of the film Paranoid Park

Gus Van Sant, Larry Clark and Harmony Corine have made some of the most memorable recent portraits of american teenagers. What they have in common is that they make non-jugdemental narratives that show how complex growing up is, in a society where all sorts of things collide, in a body where all sorts of things are colliding. One of the best of that golden generation of filmmakers. Close to perfection. Very close.
