Paranoid Park

Paranoid Park ★★★★

i realized early on that I had watched this years ago, when I was far too young to make any sense of it, but so many images of it remained in my memory that it felt fresher than it had any right to. i remembered [redacted], of course, but mostly i remembered the slowed-down moments, the strings of classical music, the repetition, the overall feeling of losing something you can’t ever get back. now that i understand it i know i love it, but i think i fell in love with it somehow back then and this was just confirmation.
