He keeps the sadness, but throws a mist of gentle orchestration over the songs."Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Dressing his love-worn and cracking tenor in a sacred whisper of banjo, fiddle and post-Glass pulses, tracks such as 'Wild Bill Jones,' 'Little Johnny Brown,' and 'O Death' are transformed anew for this new age of dire consequence."0.1457733

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 DVD0.1296635
