Product Description

Twenty-something Luciano Gauna is odd. A failing screenwriter in Buenos Aires, Luciano lives in a state of paranoia, afraid of everything from STDs to his doorman. When his childhood friend Manuel, a very successful TV producer, returns from Madrid with his stunning new girlfriend Sofia, his world is thrown into a desperate funk. He discovers that Manuel has unflatteringly modeled him as the lead character on a successful Spanish TV show called The Paranoids, which Manuel is now bringing to Argentina. When Manuel leaves on a business trip to Chile, Luciano s remaining grip on reality unravels when he s left alone with Sofia and her alluring charm.

Review

Surprisingly tense, more than a little silly, and filmed with a Fincher-esque OCD precision --The L Magazine

Visually striking, surprisingly dramatic and plenty hip. Lush photography and a pulsating score. --Boxoffice.com

Special Features

None.

Format: DVD
'The Paranoids' is an indie film from Argentina about two friends who are scriptwriters. Luciano is extremely passive and fearful, and is struggling both socially and professionally, while Manuel is a more aggressive and typically 'successful' guy. It is a source of tension that the latter one has created a TV series based on the former one, without first consulting with him. But it is an attractive girl, named Sofia, who most affects the dynamics of their friendship. This is one of those stories where the audience find themselves rooting for the underdog.

The film is fairly watchable, although it could use a little more subtlety and character development (especially for Manuel and Sofia). The photography is nice and the soundtrack is a very cool collection of rock and electronic music, likely from Argentina. 'The Paranoids' reminds me a bit of 'Reality Bites', which has a similarly hip, MTV feeling, only this one has a distinct Latin American urban flavor.

I stopped this film after an hour or so, finding it somewhere between frustrating and unbearable. The film revolves around a character named Luciano, who does not demonstrate a single feature that is interesting, endearing or admirable. Withdrawn, fearful and painfully awkward, I have a hard time imagining how the writers or director thought that an audience would develop any interest in Luciano - and he is called upon to carry the movie. There was nothing about this film that drew me in or held my attention, the action (and I use the term 'action' advisedly, being nothing more than a series of vaguely awkward scenes) moves at a glacial pace, and when I realized there was no ending that might be surprising or interesting to me, I turned it off.
