Film Education

This week we're getting up close with ‎Rian Johnson's postmodern film noir Brick (2005).

The first two films I gave the "Up Close" treatment to were well established pop culture touchstones so I'm glad to highlight a mostly lesser seen film this time. With all these shots taken out of their context the video also works well as a spoiler free trailer of sorts.

So if you haven't seen Brick I highly recommend it. It features a great performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt who went on to reunite with the director for the bigger blockbuster Looper (2012). Next week it's back to another huge pop culture hit.

Music: Emily's Theme - Nathan Johnson (from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
