I've been lurking for some time and thought it was time to say hello. Saw this today and wondered what y'all thought.

< http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/movie.html?v_id=318891&inline=nyt_ttl> a flashy cinematic stunt perpetrated by Rian Johnson
< http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/filmography.html?p_id=302822&inline=nyt-per>, dispenses with the adolescent gibberish of the here and now to graft the hard-boiled argot of Dashiell Hammett
< http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/filmography.html?p_id=187974&inline=nyt-per> onto an upscale Southern California high school: the milieu of "Beverly Hills 90210" and "The O.C." goes noir. http://movies2.nytimes.com/2006/03/31/movies/31bric.html?th&emc=th

Will Hammett be popular among the high school set?

Best, JT
