I was out there opening night at the Arbor. Yeah, it's no Alamo, and yeah, it's kinda far north, but dammit BRICK is so worth it. It's only showing in Austin and Dallas on one screen apiece, so get off yer butts and go give it a whirl. The smallish audience that was there had a very positive reaction to the film, and I've talked about it all week -- best thing I've seen in awhile. In fact, with all the twisted cool lingo, it's probably worth two viewings, so I'll be there again. Someone let me know if Rian Johnson is showing up! Damn, I'd like to buy that man a beer. Freaking genius.

I dug it for the most part, but the one MAJOR complaint I have about the film is the characters talk so fast and in such a monotone that about half the dialogue sounded like mush. It's well-written and I liked the stylization of it... when I could actually understand what words they were saying. I think it would have been about 100% better if the actors had not been required to deliver the dialogue at such a rapid-fire pace... most of the time it just sounded like mumbling, particularly the main character. otherwise, i thought it was very clever and unique, and I would definitely check out his next project.

I was there opening day at the Arbor as well. I've been waiting for this movie for like a year and a half. I have told everyone I know in Austin to see it. I actually emailed Rian at the Brick site right last year about how he got into Sundance and what he shot on etc. He was nice enough to write back. He really did make one of the best films of the year. To be honest, I'm not surprised such a cool movie went over the heads of Austin. Just because the AICN guys are savvy, that skews the picture. Do you know what fucking movie people keep mentioning to me over the past few weeks? Waiting! I can't wait to see to see Rian's next movie.

Er... sorry. Wrong thread. Yeah. Brick rules, great example of a movie that was not only made totally independently, but couldn't have been made any other way - no studio would touch something this weirdly wonderful. Go see it this weekend, beeyatches.
