Paranoid poster

Jan. 11, 2008by: Ben Barna
I spend terrifying nights, awake and alone, scribbling endless looping calculations, all in the hopes of discovering why Gus Van Sant made FINDING FORRESTER and GOOD WILL HUNTING. Not that theyre bad films, but that they just dont fit in with the rest of his career. Almost his entire filmography is a vanguard testament to a director making films on his own terms. Its rare that he doesnt experiment. His latest foray into youthful angst once again features non-actors (like his Palme dOr winning ELEPHANT) and is about a young skateboarder who accidentally kills a security guard. The film is set in Van Sants current home of Portland, Oregon and is based on the novel by Blake Nelson. PARANOID PARK premiered at last years Cannes film festival and won the special 60th anniversary prize and now AICN has an exclusive look at the films one-sheet. Click on the shadowy skateboarder to see one of the better haircuts Ive seen in a while.
Extra Tidbit: When I ask about movies like FINDING FORRESTER and GOOD WILL HUNTING, I'm not forgetting about his remake of PSYCHO, but I think it's better if we all do.

A really good film - saw it at TIFF. It was kind of my intro to van Sant's more experimental work and it had a lyrical quality to it that has stayed with me since. And that's a pretty solid poster.

They might be close storywise but Good Will Hunting is superior by miles to Finding Forrester and is actually a good movie
