Books on Film: Brick

Brick (2005) is a film with a modern twist on detective noir. Set in high school, it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Brendan Frye who takes it upon himself to solve the murder of his ex-girlfriend, Emily. In the middle of the movie, Brendan goes to a party at a house that has THIS library. Oh how I would love to have an office that extended to the floor above via spiral staircase where my books waited for me. But I would turn on more lights.

  1. Amazing library! I have not seen this movie, but I like this actor from 500 Days of Summer. Will have to check it out sometime. Yes, and maybe a few more chandeliers would be needed in that library to actually read the books šŸ™‚

    • I think it’s so dark so there’s “mood lighting” for the party, but I’m itching to turn on a light and steer the characters towards a bookshelf!

      It’s a good movie, but it takes a little while to get used to the terminology they use.. lots of slang is tossed around. It’s very hardboiled.

  2. Oh, I’ve heard good things about this movie but have never gotten around to watching it. I spend more time reading books these days and watching a few TV shows with DH.

    • I used to read more than watch TV, but TV seems to be taking more and more time. I think it’s a combination of Tivo and having something in common to watch with the DH.
