Paranoid Park. Gus van Sant. 2007. ★★★★★★
It might be excessive, but I think my rating here can be defended. The sequencing of events; the (I’m assuming) somewhat improvised dialogue; the (I’m assuming) non-professional actors; the sound editing: It all feels so fresh and original. And it results in an utterly engrossing experience.
Saettle Manhattan: 😃
