IF you can accept that Brick is a film about a bunch of high schoolers involved in their own drug trade, you'll love the film. If you try to use logic and disregard the seemingly implausible plot than you'll find the film tortuous. I for one loved the film and thought it was unbelievably believable. The kids are great and Rian Johnson directs with confidence and style. Absolutely amazing!

Nice try...but it didn't work. I get where the Director was attempting to go with this, however it just did not work for me on any level. The movie tries way too hard to be "COOL" and mix new age with noir and fails miserably.

Brick review

This picture reminded the critic of elements from Vertigo, Memento and Persona like shots. The director has the potential to be great with balanced/more likable characters and better artists. Brendan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) receives a call from an ex and mentions "brick", "poor Frisco", "tug", and "the Pin." He and his friend The Brain (Matt O'Leary) try to decipher the mystery of Emily Kostich's death (Emilie de Ravin). If only the dialogues (short too hip) and names were realistic and the scene where Brendan snoops in the office of The Pin (Lukas Haas) were though of (a drug dealer without security, baffling huh). Another flaw this rater noticed is casting Lukas Haas, no matter how good the role or picture, it becomes dull with him around for some reason. The action, clues and scree...

"Brick" by Yojimbo

After a panicky phone call from an ex-girlfriend, a high school student finds her dead and sets out to find out what happened to her. My first thought about this film was "Heathers rip-off". This soon became "David Lynch lite". But then it became something wholly different; it was as if I were watching the film evolve as it unfolded. Essentially it's a film noir relocated to a high school. All the types are present; cynical loner as self-destructive anti-hero seeking atonement for some past crime, the intellectual nerd as steetwise sidekick, prom queen as manipulative femme fatale, high school musical diva as gold digging vamp and dope dealing stoner as the petty hood cum stool pigeon. These characters are so well realised and "adult", you often forget the whole school setting, and the di...
