Noir, noir away…

I have a movie rental suggestion, if you give a hoot.

The film is 2005’s ‘Brick’ and is a noirish, teenage detective story set near and around a high school in the coastal town of San Clemente, CA.

The direction and the dialogue are highly stylized, which might turn some people off, but keeping up is certainly worth the effort. Brick features a talented cast of young actors. The shining star of the movie is the protagonist, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who you might remember from the sitcom 3rd Rock From The Sun.

Brick isn’t perfect and it gets a little muddy toward the end, but I think some of you might enjoy it greatly.

Cool! I was wanting to check it out based solely on the trailer, but now that you liked it I definitely will watch it!
