Brick

Brick

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 )

Been a huge fan of Brick since it came out almost 15 years ago. It's a clever and bizarre retelling of the Bogart classic The Big Sleep, set within the cliques and under-workings of a high school. I recommend this to everyone who's looking for something a little different and smart. I'm not sure why it's on Shudder per se, but it does have a mysterious private eye feel.

I have loved this movie since it first came out. To me it will always be brilliant. It is a beautiful thought provoking movie. When people ask what movies I love this is definitely on my list, along with funny games (the original and the new one).
