  • Excerpt: If the idea of a modern-day high-school drama played out entirely like a film noir wasn�t entirely successful in Rian Johnson�s debut feature Brick , the novelty of the conceit tiring pretty quickly once it had served its purpose in establishing a particular mood, it did at least indicate the...

  • Excerpt: Not all outsiders are con artists, but every con artist has to be an outsider at heart. Insinuating into other people’s lives is an essential professional skill, but those who can’t step away in an instant might as well become schnooks like all the rest.

  • Summary: David Mamet, the undisputed master of the conman film, is imitated far less than he should be. So it’s nice to see his influence in Rian Johnson’s follow-up to his polarising debut, Brick .

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
12 November 2009
  • Excerpt: "The Brothers Bloom" is an offbeat, eccentric story. The unique approach to story-telling is utterly refreshing as it blends moments of genuine romance, intrigue and comedy which are complemented by a superb, mostly orchestral score.
