Burn After Reading


burnafterreadingWhen aĀ CIAĀ analyst (John Malkovich) is fired, he decides to write a bookā€¦ but the consequences are deadly for some of Washingtonā€™s dumbest citizens.Ā This is the Coen brothers having a little fun after winning Oscars forĀ No Country for Old MenĀ (2007). Their story about dirty deals and paranoia in the nationā€™s capital is well paced and has funny situations as well as a black sense of humor. The movie is very well cast, with amusing performances by Brad Pitt (love that hairdo), Frances McDormand and George Clooney. Still, as one of the characters puts it, the plot is a real clusterfuck.

2008-U.S. 95 min. Color.Ā Written and directed byĀ Joel and Ethan Coen.Ā Cast:Ā George Clooney (Harry Pfarrer), Frances McDormand (Linda Litzke), Brad Pitt (Chad Feldheimer), John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton, Richard Jenkinsā€¦ Dermot Mulroney, J.K. Simmons.
