This is the trailer for Paranoid Park, directed by Gus Van Sant – director of better-than-mediocre studio movies (Finding Forrester, Good Will Hunting) and annoyingly pretentious indie flicks (Elephant, Last Days).

It’s about "a 16-year-old skateboarder accidentally killls a security guard at a skate park."

It looks pretty unrealistic, considering it’s set in Portland and doesn’t seem to have any lesbians or homeless people in it.  I also probably would’ve cast a kid who could actually read as the main character, but that’s just me. (opens March 7th)
