LRA writes: Independent films are a strange beast sometimes. It seems that every year one or two films breakout of that tiny niche and make it big like last years big winner The Kids Are All Right. But then you always have the other ones that are often just as good if not more so that fail to crack that shell they are stuck in like the critically acclaimed yet unseen Buried or Jack Goes Boating from last year. Both amazing films that didn't get the recognition they deserved. Paper Man is yet another one to add to that list of fantastic films from the independent world. I am not gonna lie though, the only thing that caught my eye at first was the cast. I usually try to avoid the trap of seeing films ONLY because of who plays in them. While the actor is an essential piece to a film working there are many other aspects that lend themselves to the art that mustn't be overlooked.
