I would just like to make a quick post saying that, if you are in an area where the movie Brick is available for screening, PLEASE make it a point to see it as soon as possible. It's the best movie (so far) that I've seen this year. It's a classic detective story,  with a fresh twist that doesn't come off as forced or pretentious. The acting is wonderful, and the lead (Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Brendan Fry), of course, is amazing. If anybody saw Mysterious Skin you'll know what I mean. The music is terrific. The script is witty, but not beatyouovertheheadlookatmei'mclever witty. It's an all around solid film, but I won't go too much into plot. Basically Brendan is a high school student trying to help out his ex-girlfriend who's mixed up in some crazy stuff. I suggest you don't even know what it's about before seeing it. Some people don't like the film but that's because they're idiots and don't want to admit they couldn't understand it. Haha, kidding. Sort of. OK, I'm not the best at this sort of thing but believe me, this movie is amazing. And if anyone saw it and disagrees...por que?
