About the Movie

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)

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Johnson isn't the first director to subvert suburbia, but he's probably the first to have done such a fine job of it on his first outing. – Neva Chonin, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: There's no denying that Brick is weirdly expressive, often when it seems most artificial. What begins as the most gimmicky sort of genre retread somehow evolves into that most elusive of films: a personal statement. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Alas, Brick, from writer-director Rian Johnson, isn't as clever as its conceit. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Brick is smart -- perhaps too smart for its own good at times. But in the end, its affectations add up to entertainment. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jun 24, 2010

I have been waiting for this to be released on iTunes for a while now. This is one of the best movies I have seen in a while. Proof that Rian Johnson is one of the best directors around. Watch this movie it is awesome!

The Return of the Great Noir Story

This Movie works as both a testament to making a lot with a shoe string budget and a fresh take on an old genre. This is a movie that takes place in a highly stylized world were highschool kids talk much more wise beyond their years like their in a old mystery novel from the 30's or 40's, but never is it done in a way that's winking at the camera. Rain Johnson is one of the next big visionaries in cinema.


excellent script. excellent cast. excellent cinematography. excellent direction. this film was quite different from the trailer that i viewed, but proved to be far better. a refreshing take on multiple genres.
