 about brickthrewglass

Brick threw glass is a Movie review website. Brick threw glass is a metaphor I made up for film, the BRICK is the anamorphic shot blocking, and GLASS is the camera lens , the word THREW is a play on words, should have been thru but, I used the words THREW. This website reviews and critics films in a different way,using humor it also tries to interject some of my technical knowledge of how films are created and made into the process.

 

image: titlte: no spoiler reviews
OK “We don’t do spoilers”; it’s my policy to be very vague about the story lines of the films I review here. I have always hated reading movie reviews that tell to much about a film. Entering a theater already having preconceived notions about the plot and / or the outcome of the film in the past have ruined the viewing experience for me,so this is why  these reviews are written this way . More info about our NO Spoiler Movie Review!

Memento :: movie review 2000
This is the story of  Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce) who can’t make any new memories every time he wakes up or drifts off he was to start all over. Lenny is on a quest to find his wife’s killer by tattooing facts on his body and taking Polaroid pictures with notes. He has a system and this is where the plot of this movie thrives, in flashbacks and the underlying of story of Sammy Jankis who he meet years earlier and had a similar condition, so Lenny’s has “remember Sammy Jankis” tattooed on his hand this is the audiences first cue that this is going to get interesting. This is a lesson in how a great script, well acted scenes and well thought out staging and shot blocking can make a great film that didn’t cast 100 million dollars. I was given this film by an old friend Tom Ardavany who is an acting coach to the rich and famous and I edited a film trailer for, and from the viewpoint of an editor this movie is magic. I was and still am amazed the depth of the performances and the story driven drama. This movie is not pretentious and I don’t think anyone who was involved in this project new it would all gel into such a great movie. It may be a bit heavy for younger viewers but it’s a film that every film school student should watch and learn how to make a clever thriller without the explosions and special effects and rely on the script and acting to make a watchable and engaging film.

Maybe I’ve became jaded as the depth of modern film making , but I found this film a repeat viewer, Meaning that I watched it twice 9 years ago and again recently.  Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano are all very believable and give solid performances, and make this film what it is . This movie was written and directed by Christopher Nolan who adapted it from a short story his brother Jonathan Nolan wrote and took the project to another level. So if you’re in the mood for a thriller or just want to view a film that challenges you to figure out the plot, not spoon feed it to you , you should check Memento.
