Burn After Reading 2008

description written by member Zara:

John Malkovich stars in this dark comedy from Oscar winners Joel and Ethan Coen as Osbourne Cox, an ousted CIA official who loses his recently penned memoir into the hands of a pair of moronic gym employees. George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton round out the cast of this irreverent farce, whose title alludes to former CIA director Stansfield Turner's book Burn Before Reading: Presidents, CIA Directors, and Secret Intelligence.

Burn After Reading Movie Review by Movie Addict (1/29/2009)

There really doesn't seem to be much sense in what is going on. It is like Fargo in that respect. And, like Fargo, it is an opportunity for everyone to just have a good time and be funny.

Brad Pitt is hilarious, and Frances McDormand is equally so. Together they just make this one of the funniest films about spies and...

Burn After Reading Movie Review by Chris (1/1/2009)

Joel and Ethan Coen have really invented some great films. Fargo, Miller's Crossing, The Big Lebowski and No Country For Old Men are some of their most stand out films. Their latest film 'Burn After Reading' is not as good as those films listed, but it was still really good. It's a mix of mystery and black comedy, lead by...

Burn After Reading Movie Review by Zara (11/11/2008)

This movie is confusing. I mean, I ended up really liking it and all but I don't think I could properly explain what it was that I liked the best about it. I could point out the bizarre and wonderful affectations of the actors in the movie and how great they all are (from Clooney to Pitt to McDormand to Swinton to...

Burn After Reading Movie Review by Ben (9/16/2008)

"Burn After Reading" is a crazy movie to say the least, and it does not really have so much a plot as it does a plethora of characters that are unleashed on us through an a selfish act of utter stupidity. As a result, there is no rug of any kind that can tie the room together. The main drive of the action comes from Chad...

Burn After Reading Movie Review by Jarrod (9/13/2008)

'Burn After Reading' arrives on the heels of No Country for Old Men, which won four Oscars and was, at least in my view, the best Coen brothers film since Fargo. Returning to the genre that got them started in the industry, this latest effort from the Coens is a black comedy, an absurd and very funny one, with a healthy...
