Brick: If you don't like it, blame Hunter!


I had actually seen this movie before, but I didn't remember the whole thing. Plus, with as many pictators as we have (it's really more of a socialist republic but there isn't any good pun for that), it's inevitable that someone will have seen one of the movies before. Anyway, this movie is really good. The stock summary is that it's a film noir set in a high school, which maybe sounds weird but is pretty awesome. Because it's a mystery, I don't want to say too much more than that on the off chance that someone who hasn't seen it stumbles upon this blog. But anyway, I liked the movie and more specifically its portrayal of people in high school as "real people." I will leave it to Hunter to elaborate on that because he has watched the director commentary and if I post what he told me from there he'll say I stole it from him.

  1. I picked this, so I'm not sure what I have to say. Obviously, I like this movie, probably more than I can fully justify. And not just because it has Emilie de Ravin in it. It probably feeds into some sort of wish-fulfillment, "oh what if I had been interesting" thing. Or maybe it's just good and there should be more detective/noir films.

    I dunno.
