Lee Daniels' Paperboy visceral and well crafted, by Moira Sullivan














Near the end of the Cannes film Festival comes a film that just blows it all in a new direction, clearly the most visceral, and a well crafted film at that. Every shot is loaded with punch and some of the montage sequences recall the principles of Eisenstein for the creation of pathos.

Paperboy is a gritty narrative, shocking in parts, some of which are even repugnant. Seldom has such realistic stuff been arranged in a film.It is purposeful and shows the interconnection between racism, sexism and homophobia, linking them in a brutal story with performances by Macy Gray, David Oyelowo, Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughy, John Cusack and Zac Efron that are raw and jagged.

This film has it all:casting (Lea Daniels Butler), script, editing and
cinematography. Based on a novel by Peter Dexter, and adapted by Lee Daniels. Bravo!


Moira Sullivan
