Now we are dangerous as we celebrate Noirvember by having an informal chat with the vice-principal about Brick, director Rian Johnson's teen noir debut. Listen as we discuss how the classic noir archetypes translate perfectly to a high school setting, examine the moral ambiguity of Joseph Gordon Levitt's moody detective protagonist, and debate whether the character of Brain actually exists in the reality of the film. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and lots of white T-shirts.
