"A brilliant way of converting the cryptic communication and allegiances of high school into a potboiling mystery. You'll leave the theater giddy with excitement. "
"The single most satisfying cinematic experience of 'Brick' lies in witnessing director Johnson's matter-of-fact transformation of the contemporary American suburban landscape into a moral stage of mythic proportion."
"Noir-ish dialogue in a high school is inherently funny -- not always in the laugh-out-loud sense, but consistently in the this-dialogue-is- interesting-to- listen-to sense."
