Hi I'm a portuguese fan and I loved the movie.

Does anybody now some links to download the extras from the DVD or something like that?

PS: In my country the DVD it´s not for sale yet, and I think that it isn't going to be in the future

Thanks

I've actually thought about putting the extras online, or at least the British extras, which aren't currently available in the US. But unfortunately the distribution company owns the extras, making my well intentioned but illegal online distribution of them problematic.

More disreputable corners of the internet might have it... or you could buy a US or UK disc if you have a multi-region player...

Alas, I fear that woulod not be the funniest ever...at least as long as we live in a world where a woman will sue the makers of a contraceptive jelly because she got pregnant after eating it on toast.

How soon after because it's been three weeks for me now and the rabbit still lives?

Sounds like she got herself in a real jam.

Hey
Just got a question which i urgently need the answer for.

How do the male and female characters compare in 'Brick'?
What gender roles are assigned to the male and female characters in 'Brick'?

Most of the gender roles are subverted by using blatant pre-war homosexual stereotypes aligned with a mid-70's cultural ennui, especially in the case of the second femme fatale that enters at the beginning of the third act.

As for comparisons between the male & female characters, many of the prejudices associated with dominant German new-wave films have been carried across, and in some cases inverted, for maximum effect on current high-school dilatory trends.

(Don't copy and paste that, Lina.) :wink:

It sounds like answering those questions would require writing your essay for you, but as a nudge in the right direction I'd say to think about what each character's position of power is, both personally and in the high school society, how they hold on to that power, and what they choose to do with it. Good luck.
