Go See This Movie

Do not miss Brick. It's Rian Johnson's neo-noir debut feature and it's the coolest thing I've seen so far this year. It has just the right amount of irony and more witty dialogue than I could wrap my head around. I was laughing unapologetically in the theatre and so was the rest of the crowd. Brick is just right for gen X-ers who've seen more than a few films, but even if you don't fall into this category, I would bet no small amount of jake that you'll think Brick is almost too cool for its own good. But not.

So awesome. Go see it.

Brick stars Joseph-Gordon Levitt (so good these days—did you catch Mysterious Skin) and Lukas Haas ("The pin. Older. Like, twenty-six.") I shelled out $9.00 and saw it at my local multiplex, so it's not just an art-house thing. Go. Seriously.
