Sitting in the theater watching “Paranoia,” I thought it would make a great scenario for a TV crime drama. It’s not the type of movie that plays well on the big screen.
First off, look at the title. When someone is paranoid, there’s usually an irrational fear behind it. The main character in this movie wasn’t paranoid; he was being followed, blackmailed and other seedy things. With that kind of title, you’d think there was a twist at the end leaving him in a paranoid state, which wasn’t the case.
