Another great little movie: Brick, described on the Aquarius Theatre's marquee as "Sam Spade in school." As the kids say, tru dat. Maybe high school wasn't actually a film noir, but I tell you, sometimes it sure as hell felt like it.
D and I saw it with our friend jra, and afterwards he quipped: "I'm hungry for some hard-boiled eggs." I, too, had the sudden urge to speak in short, clipped sentences filled with slang.
