Paper Heart is a cutesy quirky piece of moviemaking with that Charlyne Yi girl who I’m sure no one would’ve given a second glance if it weren’t for this ongoing hipster movement. Since geekery is now cool and being out is now in, maybe the charm and cuteness of this movie is supposed to portray the opposite? How deep was Paper Heart intended to be? Possibly not at all, despite tackling the topic of love in an almost scholar-like approach in some of the scenes. One thing I’m glad to note about Paper Heart is that the handheld treatment didn’t go overboard for forced realism. Yup I guess that’s it. Oh but I do have just one question- why does Charlyne Yi always act like she’s on dope?
