 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.

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 .

Choke :: movie review 2008
OK this is a stretch but I’m going to try to do this, meet Victor (Sam Rockwell)  as the movie starts he is at a sex addict’s anonymous meeting, he and his best friend who is also a sex addict work at a theme park based on early colonial American Life and have to speak in old English or be reprimanded by their idiot boss. He is a conman who tricks people into thinking he is choking in restaurants to get money from them that he uses to play for the hospitalization of this mentally sick mom who doesn’t even recognize him.  This film got my attention because it is based on a book by the man who wrote Fight Club Chuck Palahniuk so I was eager to watch this but got sidetracked by the whole movie review website thing and trying to keep up this the latest releases. So this is a funny movie and is what allot of movie try to be a dark comedy, with the use of flashbacks to the insane antics of his mother as he was growing up and the whole sex addict, con man thing it’s so absurd that you can’t help but laugh. This is a true indie film and was picked up by Fox Searchlight at Sundance film festival and is a story driven movie with a story by a great writer and some good acting. Directed by Clark Gregg and he does a great job and should be able to keep directing more movie after this one as the shots and the feel  is there to make the action believable. I am a sucker for film like this and as amazed at the dialog and the story which again is well written and has a bigger purpose as it I drifted deeper into it.

The supporting cast and the colonial American costumes and wigs are just ridiculous and really had me going. My friend veronica was or is reading the book and reminded me about this story so I just watched the film again, after Fight club this film has high expectations and it’s no Fight club, but does deliver where a lot of films fail. So all said and done if you’re in the mood for a comedy that’s wild to say the least check out Choke…
