great modern muder-mystery film-noir

Take a classic 1940s film noir murder mystery and throw it into modern times, make it revolve around drugs and high school kids, add some awesome handheld camera cinematography, and you have 'Brick'. I thought the acting was completely stellar from everyone involved, although the teens seemed a lot more mature and intelligent than real teens found in today's high schools. I think it would've bee... read more

"Throw one at me if you want, hash head. I've got all five senses and I slept last night, that puts me six up on the lot of you."

Brick is an interesting little flick, a motion picture that you admire and appreciate for its ambitions rather than conventionally love or enjoy. Independently financed and produced on a paltry budget, the film is the directorial debut of Rian Johnson, wh... read more

I think I'm going to have to watch this again as I'm sure it deserves more than a 7/10, but I just didn't hear enough of it to make complete sense of everything that was going on (hearing problems).

I really liked the noir-mystery style of the film, and the acting was good from everyone. I was surprised to see a couple of more well-known faces in the cast (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and E... read more

Description: In a modern-day Southern California neighborhood and high school, student Brendan Frye's piercing intelligence spares no one. He's not afraid to back up his words with actions, and knows all the angles; yet he prefers to stay an outsider, and does - until the day that his ex-girlfriend, Emily, reaches out to him unexpectedly and then vanishes. His feelings for her still run deep; so much so, that he becomes consumed with finding his troubled inamorata. To find her, he enlists the aid of his only true peer, the Brain, while keeping the assistant vice principal only occasionally informed of what quickly becomes a dangerous investi ... (more)

2019 Diary: April (15 movies items)

"Brilliant, wonderful, a perfect noir film. Pacing, editing, setting, it's all great. This film is seamless. It's a real joy to watch. I've never been totally into classic noir, the genre has its highlights but I just haven't been one to lose myself in a hardboiled detective story. But putting the hardboiled detective in highschool changes everything- every cliche and trope that would bring me a little out of the immersion is unique and fresh and funny. It's a really unique film and totally succe"

" Date: 3/7/2019 Viewed: Netflix Rewatch Note: I decided to watch this on Netflix after not having seen it since I was 15 back in High School. It's still a great movie and I enjoy slow burn movies for the most part. I really like all of the characters and doing a noir type of movie with teenagers was surprisingly well done. I highly recommended this movie."

"High school film noir was quite interesting film but didn't really explode my mind like I was expecting after hearing how great this movie was supposed to be for a while."
