Directed by Rian Johnson
Brendan Frye is a loner, someone who knows all the angles but has chosen to stay on the outside. When the girl he loves turns up dead, he is determined to find the “who” and “why” and plunges into the dark and dangerous social strata of rich girl Laura, intimidating Tug, drug-addled Dode, seductive Kara, and the ominous Pin. But who can he really trust? These are the ingredients of Brick, a gritty and provocative thriller that critics describe as “a clever, twist-filled whodunit!” (Claudia Puig, USA Today )

Très bon film ! Un cross over entre teen movie et film noir. Personnages intriguant porté par des d'excellents comédiens. Mais ceci n'est pas un film d'horreur.
Brilliant film. If you love Dashiell Hammett, and particularly Red Harvest, The Glass Key, and The Maltese Falcon - this film will be everything and more.
I think this film had potential. I feel like I probably missed something though since I didn't have a clear idea as to what was going on. Some of the actors seemed very good but the plotline got away from me, although I think this is due to the fact that I was partially asleep during the majority of the film duration.
My gf showed me this and all i have to say after all that is, Motherfucker.
While a fantastic movie, it doesn't belong on Shudder. I just feel stuff like this is a slippery slope to this just becoming Netflix. Going to cancel my membership for now and see how this place is next year.
