  2. Elephants_Gerald's rating of the film Better Luck Tomorrow

    You know, I do love BRICK, but this movie ended up being the better way to do a modern noir, never winking or wading around in tropes. TOMORROW is more like the Coen Bros in its noir pastiche, finding a touchstone in those conventions but powering through them with sheer grittiness and cynicism. Where BRICK put a teenage Marlowe in a dreamworld, LUCK gets to the heart of noir: bad decisions and people beyond helping.

  3. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Better Luck Tomorrow

    Mix a typical high-school story & add the energy of a Scorsese/Tarantino, through the lens of Asian Americans, & you'll get the high-quality debut of Justin Lin. Forgoing any significant adult figures, it naturally was called an endorsement of bad behavior by the closed-minded. However, this film is an exciting dark comedy/tragedy that hooks you from the start.

  4. Michael Peer's rating of the film Better Luck Tomorrow

    An energetic, "fast and furious", cautionary tale that feels fresh and innovative. It's great seeing a familiar coming of age high-school movie told with uncommon cultural stars.

  5. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Better Luck Tomorrow

    As far as high-school subversions of film noir go, I liked this way more than "Brick".
