Brick (2005)

By Mrugesh Bavda

This underappreciated, suspenseful drama features a concentrated plot filled with mystery. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Third Rock From the Sun) continues his indie streak with another enjoyable film. Brick looks at high school life in a different manner; it takes the suspense of a murder thriller and places it in typical suburbia. The full cast adds complexity and brings the sharp drama to its own genre. No wonder it was named one of the 50 best high school movies.
