movie review, in however many words it takes

movie: Brick (2005)
starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nora Zehetner, Lukas Haas, and some other folk
plot: guy gets a call from his ex-girlfriend, who sounds totally freaked out. she's hooked on drugs, winds up with the wrong crowd, and gets killed. guy enters a local drug ring to try and figure out what happened.
verdict: well worth watching, and worth paying to see if necessary. a rather dark and very strange movie, but well acted and incredibly well shot. the folks who put this one together definitely knew what they were doing.
