CinematicUnderground and Us

Tycelia and I saw "Brick" on Sunday evening. More in a bit. This is Nathan Johnson and the members of Cinematic Underground. Nathan did the score for the film. His cousin, Rian Johnson wrote and directed.

This is one of the most satisfying films I've seen in a long time and I can't recommend it too highly. To say it's a 40s film noir detective classic along the lines of "The Maltese Falcon" set in a modern-day So-Cal high school environment, is both accurate and misleading as hell. It is dead serious and incredibly quirky and fun to be with! Go see it. That's all. Then we'll talk.

Who would have thought that San Clemente would be famous for more than Richard Nixon's home away from home?
