The Paranoids

Reviewer: Craig Phillips

Rating (out of 5): **½

Argentinean filmmaker Gabriel Medina's offbeat first feature The Paranoids (Los paranoicos) moves a bit slow, but it's still inventive and occasionally enchanting enough to make one curious about what the filmmaker may do next. Essentially a character study, the film follows Luciano (Whisky's talented Daniel Hendler, looking a bit like a Uruguayan Paul Schneider), a quirkily neurotic, procrastinating screenwriter who earns a living entertaining at kids' parties (garbed in a Smoochy-like suit as his character "Cachito"). He spends a lot of time brooding in his apartment because he's, well, paranoid and sociophobic. He's such the perfectionist that he's spent years struggling over one script, and unsurprisingly, all his anxieties make it hard for him to have a girlfriend. (In the midst of a fling, he's terrified of contracting an Std because the condom breaks.)

A Speedy Recovery to: Adam Yauch of Oscilloscope Laboratories

[/link] of Oscilloscope Laboratories (or better known as McA from the Beastie Boys) a speedy recovery. One third of the hip hop trio will be sidelined from performing with the group this summer due to a treatable, cancerous tumor in his salivary glands. With film being his second passion, perhaps there is a positive to be found in a negative: more down time, might mean more movie watching? Less than three years old, his independent film distribution label has become a testament during a full blown crisis in the film industry, that a small scale model can still thrive and deliver quality films to a public. He'll be busy with Oscilloscope's upcoming releases of Laura Gabbert, Justin Schein's No Impact Man this September, Oren Moverman's The Messenger in November and he has the eventual releases of a Jules Dassin title The Law, Lance Daly's Kisses,

Recent US Acquisitions

For a market that is supposed to be flat, there are a number of U.S. film acquisitions made in the month of March, not to mention February. If there's no money, are these companies acquiring them for no mgs? The films are also holding up surprisingly well in theaters which bodes well for future sales of independent films into the coming year. Rumblings from venture capital waiting in the wings to begin investing again are also heard. I predict 2010 will be the year of the turnaround when the buying cycle begins again. Meanwhile there are some bargains to be had. Also notable are the key festivals where these films have all shown.

Amreeka was acquired by National Geographic and will open New Directors/ New Films. It showed as a work in progress at the Dubai Film Festival and went from there to its world premiere at Sundance.
