A 2006 cult film directed/written by Creator/RianJohnson, '''''Brick''''' tells the story of Brendan Frye (Creator/JosephGordonLevitt), a teenage loner silently pining over his ex-girlfriend, Emily. When he gets a phone call from a panicked Emily, and finds her dead in a storm drain soon after, he goes on a one-man quest to bring her murderer(s) to justice, blowing the lid off of his high school's underworld of drugs and crimes.

* WomanInBlack: Kara wears a {{Stripperific}} black dress at one point and a long black robe later; not coincidentally, these are the scenes where she is the most manipulative. In a rather odd use of this trope, [[spoiler: Laura is also wearing black when she sleeps with Brendan; on first viewing, this is the point when the viewer is mostly likely to find her sympathetic, but it's also immediately before she becomes responsible for the death of five people and her role in Em's death is revealed.]]

* SunshineNoir: It's set in sunny San Clemente, California, and even though it's set in January, ''Brick'' is still probably one of the most brightly lit noir films ever made.
