...And I like almost everything about it: the casting, the pacing, the music, the feel. I only had a problem with the dialog. Brick is clearly an homage to detective noir, but I wanted the dialog to sound like high school kids talking, not 40s slicksters.
Maybe the point is that outsiders don't understand kidspeak. I can accept that. I especially liked the scene wherein The Pin's mother serves Brendan apple juice. She is so far from and oblivious to the world right under her feet.
