Every week, a group of Internet radio superstars known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Sean and Travis) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener, and the betterment of mankind.
This week, Sean brings us director Rian (Looper) Johnson's Brick (2006), a neo-noir which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a high school student who infiltrates a seamy underworld in order to find out who murdered his ex-girlfriend. Join us as we don our metaphorical fedora hats and plunge into the world of gloomy shamuses, femme fatales, mysterious figures, shadowy dealings and glamorous dames. And, high school.
