Directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting).
Starring Gabe Nevins and Danile Liu

Good music, good acting, and a good story, one told in an indirect way.  Interesting camera work.

Set in the Paranoid Park skateboard area in Portland. An accidental murder scene includes the gross crawling half body of a security guard run over by a train. Star Gabe Nevins manages to convey a range of emotions using the blank expression of a typical adolescent.

85 min. Rated R. Adult themes.
