Top & Bottom of 2007 - #7

Brick (2005)
Once you get into the rhythm of the unique dialog, Brick takes its audience on a wild film noir ride. In high school. The plot is full of twists and surprises, the violence is sudden, realistic, and brutal, and our hero even wears glasses. While it may be the least accessible film on my list, it is still highly rewarding to those who are able to immerse themselves in the world it creates.

A Boy and His Dog (1975)
A whole lot of nothing happens. Then there’s some confusing running around and shooting. Then our "hero" goes underground and some more no-a-whole-lot happens. Then he comes back to the surface. Then the credits roll. Oh, yeah, there’s a dog and a girl involved as well.
