Burn After Reading – Movie Review

If you get the Coen brothers,  you’ll dig this movie.

It’s a story of not so sharp people finding a disk that they believe contain classified info, trying to sell it, and creating a whole mixed up story around it.

Acting is great, from Brad Pitt as the gym instructor, the angry John Malkovich, the annoying George Clooney,  the unstoppable Frances McDormand (which is BTW married to Joel Coen) to Richard Jenkins ( the dead father from “6 feet under”).

Brad Pitt is really funny, but at some point in the middle it gets a little tiresome, then it picks up again.

The movie, as a good Coens’ movie, is getting twisted by the minute, with funny scenes and dialogs.

I definitely recommend, especially if you like other Coens’ movies…
