Brick is a cool movie; it’s a film noir but with high school kids. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the kid from 3rd Rock from the Sun, plays a hard boiled high school student named Brandon, who is trying to figure out what happened to his ex-girlfriend Emily, played by Emilie de Ravin who plays Claire on Lost. The acting is great; all the actors do great jobs with their roles; all the characters are really strange and interesting. The movie has almost unintelligible dialog, but what you can hear is great. The movie is shot really well, and has a very distinct style. (Almost every shot in the film has the sun in the background. The director of photography must like lens flare or something.) It’s a bizarre film, well worth seeing.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
