"The Paranoids" (Gabriel Medina; Argentina; 2009; 105 min)
An edgy, off-beat film, this young director's debut blew audiences away at San Francisco's International Film Fest. With an understated yet stylized approach, he maintains a constant sense of unease throughout the film, using black humor as occasional relief. When we meet Luciano, he's an aimless, narcoleptic loner and aspiring screenwriter who partakes in lots of random hookups. Oh, and he works children's birthday parties for a living. When a friend comes to town (with his beautiful showgirl girlfriend) to make a TV program called "The Paranoids," he asks Luciano to be the writer. Stay for the big dance number. With subtitles.
