In a film where dialogue comes at a premium, Van Sant allows his camera to do the talking, and when it rests too long on one subject, the commentary feels like overstatement. Elsewhere, 'Paranoid Park' is eloquent in its terseness.
I don't know what's more surprising: that director Gus Van Sant has made yet another movie about the lives of disaffected Portland teenagers, or that he's pulled it off one more time with "Paranoid Park."
