Watch the movie Brick again. I know you liked it the first time, and I know you like these "old school" types of flicks. When you already know the final score, the loose ends tie together. And the dialogue is that much better when you already know what they are talking about. I've watched it a few times now, and I'm confident in saying this: it's one of the best new films I've seen in years. It's worth many repeat viewings.
