Noir Saturday: No Noir This Week

No noir on Noir Alley this week, but this is one of my favorite new noir, Brick. It’s actually really good and you should check it out.

After receiving a frantic phone call from his ex-girlfriend, teenage loner Brendan Frye (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) learns that her dead body has been found. Vowing to solve her murder himself, he must infiltrate high-school cliques that he previously avoided. His search for the truth places him before some of the school’s roughest characters, leading to a confrontation with a drug dealer known as “the Pin (Lukas Haas).”

Check out the trailer below.
