Brick ★★★

Film noir in a high school setting...the acting was great and there were enough plot twists to keep the story interesting even when the movie felt slow at times. I think the concept was a bit too mature and serious to be believable (are there really high schoolers out there with such a deeply layered drug ring system?) or maybe that was the point. Or maybe I've just been influenced too much by the TV show Veronica Mars.
