Gus Van Sant's atmospherically magical study of teenage skater Jake, who tries to come to terms with a traumatic death. The teenager and skateboarder Alex is interviewed by Detective Richard Lu that is investigating the death of a security guard in the rail yards severed by a train who was apparently hit by a skateboard. While dealing with the separation process of his parents and the sexual heat of his girlfriend Jennifer, Alex writes his last experiences in Paranoid Park with his new acquaintances and how the guard was killed, trying to relieve his feeling of guilty from his conscience. PARANOID PARK was awarded the Special Prize at the 60th Cannes Festival.
