Rian Johnson, director of the 2005 high school noir Brick, appears at two Saturday screenings of his sophomore caper film The Brothers Bloom.

Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo star as siblings trying to con heiress Rachel Weisz out of her fortune. Rinko Kikuchi makes her first Hollywood turn since her Oscar-nominated performance as an affection-hungry Tokyo schoolgirl in Babel, this time as a demented demolitions specialist.

Johnson will speak after the 7 PM show and introduce the 10:10 show on Saturday at Landmark's Century Centre, 2828 N. Clark. $10.
