4.0 out of 5 stars Film Noir Set At Dawn, 30 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Brick [DVD] (DVD)
An unlikely but stylish tale surrounding a death takes our hero into the world of high-school drug barons and their muscle. This is not the harsh world of The Wire but of a couple of links further out in the drug supply chain. It remains true to much of the rules of noir; from the muscle of a young Moose Mulloy to the lost Velma, including the beating our hero takes in getting to the truth. Even if the criminal milieu is not quite as hard-boiled as it might be the plot is as traditionally taxing on our intelligence (and memory). I suspect matters of cost determined that the film be shot at dawn (Film Aube perhaps), rather than in the Chandleresque night. The result is, as Greene said of Monaco, a sunny place for shady people.
