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.
