So my doppelganger seems to have made a pretty cool new flick called BRICK, which has been getting good reviews from Sundance. It's supposed to be film noir set in a modern day high school setting. The director used classic film noir elements and narrative conventions: extreme high and low angle shots, low-key lighting, a femme fatale, a crime boss, a detective, and witty dialogue straight out of 30's pulp novels. Sounds verrrrrrrrry interesting. I'll be checking out as soon as it's released and I'm sure The Wench wouldn't mind tagging along since she seems to have a thing for Levitt.

Unoriginal opening sentence wherein I express the belief that 2018 was a pretty good year for cinema, but not as great as 2017. Standard-iss...
