Film Brief: Paper Towns

Sixteen Candles, Valley Girl, Lucas, Real Genius, The Sure Thing, Heathers, Napoleon DynamiteTwin Peaks, Rivers Edge: joy, passion, revelation, wonder and excitement.  I weep for the teens of today if the best Hollywood can muster for them is flat as paper, or Paper Towns as the case may be.  It’s joyless, but does sprinkle in a handful of Paper Towns - text blockpleasantries, a moment or two of near-loveliness, a conclusion that wasn’t terrible, and generally a mild rise above complete insipidness.  Still though, pretty insipid and a solid thumbs-down.  4/10
