Paranoid Park (2007, dir. Gus Van Sant)

A teen skateboarder may be a murderer. Lo-fi, ambient movie adapted from the Blake Nelson novel, which effectively conveys young adult disaffection, blankness and disconnection from others. Tight but loose; doesn’t overstay its welcome.

Mindhorn (2016, dir. Sean Foley)

A failed actor gets a chance to reprise his greatest character in the solving of a murder. Patchy comedy with some lovely moments and depth in detail, game performances, touristy Isle of Man locations, but an inconsistent script.
