Bricktown Blu Ray $10.47 Shipped @ Deepdiscount
Looks like a pricing mistake so might want to act fast. The MSRP $14.99 is for the DVD release. Great price on a pre-order.

I have never heard of this film. IMDb indicates a cost of $200,000 to make and there aren't 5 votes yet to see how it might be rated. I guess I will have to pass based on lack of any knowledge about it. This would be certainly be a blind buy if I did bite and it may not be a pricing error, but who knows.

their site doesn't have a trailer or anything but I came across this review from a a film festival screening
The low budget of the film—shot in the director’s hometown to save on costs and smooth permitting and casting—shows, but doesn’t really distract. Brick is a working class town and should look rough around the edges. The acting is uniformly fine, particularly from Michelle Wells as Paul’s sister and Rietveld. The film is well plotted and consistent, though a rather expansive first act could have been tightened without losing anything of importance. The middle act—the crisis—is very exciting, nerve wracking, and believable. I was in awe of the way Gibson and Hamer jumped fences through the backyards of Brick to evade the police patrolling with the searchlight. I also must mention the superb use of music in this film. I’m not very sensitive to scoring, so the fact that Carlos Rodriguez and Mr. e’s score for Bricktown seems so inevitable, suiting the pace and mood of each scene in a way that even I could admire, makes it one of the best I’ve heard.
Michael Kelber is a talented screenwriter and director whose debut feature promises good things to come. Bricktown may be a long shot for distribution, but I fully expect it to turn up at other film festivals. You should make time to see this touching, surprising, impressive debut of a new directorial talent. l
For the price and based on the review I may actually do the pre-order, I do support Indie Film as long as it's half descent...
