The film is terribly smart in every respect, with ne’er-a-false note performances and superb craft work from top to bottom. –The Hollywood Reporter

Lakeshore Records Pick Of The Week: ‘Brick’ Soundtrack

Lakeshore Records has a tremendous catalog of soundtracks and artists albums, but have you heard them all?  We dedicate this week to our first selection: Brick, scored by China Kent and Nathan Johnson.  This film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lukas Haas and Emilie de Ravin in a stylistic Noir thriller centered around a High School murder mystery (watch Brick on YouTube).  Just listen to the dialogue!

Lakeshore Records: Pick of the Week: Brick Soundtrack

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Brendan, an outcast who seeks to solve the mystery behind the murder of his ex-girlfriend, who left him cryptic clues before her demise.  The soundtrack takes you through the decades via a retro track (thanks to Bunny Berigan), a track by The Velvet Underground, and classically high-pitched and leading instrumentals which only heighten any fears you may be accumulating during key moments of the film.
