07.22.06Internet A highschool take on film noir... I'd heard a lot about how good this was... yeah, it's pretty good I guess. i think maybe I'm a little overhyped... Mostly this movie makes me wonder what highschool is actually like these days... it's hard to imagine but ten years ago every person in the country didn't have a cell phone. And in middle school before we were old enough to start with the underage drinking, sex, and drug use, the big black market school thing was bubble gum. How ridiculous does that sound... kids that were destined to become weed dealers started out by peddling watermelon bubble yum out of their lockers. Sure a few years later it was pot and all the normal teenage stuff, but from what I hear that that crap that the 15 year olds did when I was 15 is now being done by 12 and 13 year olds... so I wonder if 15 year olds nowadays really talk like this. Probably not... unless they are living in some bizarro-world version of the 40s, but still... I bet it's just as alien to me today as the language in this movie is.
