Brick (2005)

The ultra-melodramatic dialogue is the most obvious standout here, with its nod to classic noir films. It creates a really cool and unique feel for the film, even if some of the slang goes over your head the first few times, and Gordon-Levitt and the rest of the supporting cast smoothly act it out without it feeling awkward or unemotional. The violence and drugs of the dark plot, meanwhile, fit perfectly with the slick script and bleak cinematography. An engaging teen crime drama.
