Directed by: Rian Johnson
Writer-director Rian Johnson’s first feature is a hard-boiled detective story set in the margins of a California high school, complete with murder, femme fatales and dagger-sharp patter. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is perfect as the laconic Brendan. With knives in his eyes, he shakes down a high school drug ring to rattle his ex-girlfriend’s murderer.
