Brick takes all the elements of a 1940s gumshoe detective tale and fuses them with a modern day California high school drama. Instead of using witless Clueless style chit chat, the kids use bizarre detective slang which comes across a little precocious in my opinion but it's a bold move that adds a distinct flavor to the film. All the performances are strong, especially Gordon-Levitt and Lukas Haas who plays a 26 year old drugs baron with an orthopaedic shoe and runs his crime empire from his mums house. There are many eccentricities that make Brick an entertaining watch but it's a little overlong and confusing. Some of the dialogue will be lost on some viewers and as the amazon review points out, it's probably better to watch a second time.
Like this? Try: Donnie Darko
After receiving a frightened phone call from an ex-girlfriend, Brendan [Joseph Gordon-Levitt] enters the local underworld to shake things up and search for answers. With everything unfamiliar, his only friend is The Brain [Matt O'Leary] who feeds him information while he tries to track her down along a path that introduces him to a shady drug-dealing kingpin [Lukas Haas], hot-headed thugs, and femme fatales. Once murder enters the equation, he knows he is in too deep, but is determined not to stop until he discovers the truth.
The noir translates jarringly at first to its new setting. Unconvincing teenage characters shoot the sharp dialogue of the 1940's, but the strength of the delivery of this world will soon draw you in. Visually Johnson doesn't go the way of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang but instead uses a subtler technique, draining colours in some areas and adding vibrancy in others. Our hero Brendan wears an old grey jacket with glasses and an unruly mop of curly hair rather than the traditional hero's sharp get-up, but this serves to make him more accessible to us.
The plot is suitably convoluted and certainly unpredictable, yet not the film's memorable aspect. Rather it is the feeling that permeates the entire experience, strangely aided by how out of place these teenage criminals seem. Gordon-Levitt offers another strong turn as an outsider, but unlike Mysterious Skin his attraction here is from his passionate, single-minded focus rather than sexual presence.Read more ›
The first time I saw this film, I was on a plane, and the dense, brilliant prose that the characters spoke in meant that I felt almost as though I was watching Shakespeare.
A second viewing a couple of years later and it all became much clearer. The characters, all in American high school (not quite university, much like the UK college/6th form) are all speaking in classic film noir. The disconnect between what you see and what you hear is top quality entertainment.
The cast make you believe in the world, with the occasional bobbing for air on the surface to remind us that they are still living at home with their parents.
Betrayal, femme fatales, noir tropes abound and it is glorious.
