When this episode was shown on TV (and also on Adult Swim’s web site) the name of the motel was obscured. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why. But I just noticed the version posted to iTunes was clear as a bell.
On the last episode of The Totally Rad Show Dan Trachtenberg mentioned that Brick was a good movie and everyone should see it. His movie recommendations have always been good, so I decided to watch it. Thanks to my local video store I did just that a few days ago.
He mentioned it’s style was film noir, but with a twist. I enjoyed it a lot. As usual these days, it took me two viewings to fully understand the movie.
