3 stars out of 4 -- "Johnson plunges off the deep end, risking ridicule by shaping this spellbinder with grit and gravitas....Johnson's BRICK is the stuff that dreams are made of." Rolling Stone "This high school film noir deserves credit for novelty. Writer-director Rian Johnson also has a rare gift for language." Movieline's Hollywood Life "BRICK is all about style and sass....But Johnson also grabs hold a fundamental truth and seduces us with it: the schoolyard can be the noirest burg of all." -- Grade: B+ Entertainment Weekly "Johnson pulls his hipster revisionism with cine-savvy brilliance and twitchy laughs....Bursts of action arrive with a wallop..." Total Film "BRICK takes two very disparate genres, film noir detective mysteries and high school dramas, and melds them into one intriguing premise, with original dialogue and a distinctive visual style."USA Today "What it borrows from noir is not simply a set of style cues, but a sense of obsessiveness, solemnity and encroaching social breakdown, which serves as a satisfying metaphor for the self-enclosed, self-regulating society occupied by teenagers." Sight and Sound "While BRICK is chock-full of the characters, language and imager of classic noir, it is in fact set among contemporary teenagers." Box Office 4 stars out of 4 -- "The most eccentric feature to emerge from the US indie scene in years....One of the pleasures of 2006."Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "Johnson creates a complex, sophisticated thriller that audaciously fuses two disparate genres....Gordon-Levitt delivers an intense and focused performance."Ultimate DVD57.27497

"THE BROTHERS BLOOM is a con-artist movie....We expect to be played, but the twist is that we're also touched -- which, the film implies, is the cinema's own form of deception." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "THE BROTHERS BLOOM has it all: charming romance, jaunty adventure story, witty dialogue, gorgeous cinematography and superb performances."USA Today "[The director has] upped the ambition, using a light, stylish touch and a David Mamet-inspired hall-of-mirrors plot to comment on the nature of storytelling..."A.V. Club "Rian Johnson's THE BROTHER'S BLOOM lets us in on the con and then fools us. It does that in an interesting way."Chicago Sun-Times "THE BROTHERS BLOOM is all about exploding forms, tropes and archetypes. But it's also a charmer, a witty sandbagging of one's resistance to fairy tales..."Washington Post 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he characters are appealing....THE BROTHERS BLOOM is inventive..."Uncut "Devices honed by Wes Anderson -- snappily narrated and edited cutaways to episodes gilded with quirk -- are in full effect....The most interesting part of the film is often Weisz's performance."Sight and Sound57.27497
