Becky and I went to see the new Brad Pitt, George Clooney flick Burn After Reading last week at the Kerasote theaters, in Castle Rock, CO. The MSN movie website at Burn After Reading
describes the movie as follows:
“A CIA agent who is currently in the process of writing a book loses the disc containing his only manuscript in this comedic tale of espionage that reunites filmmaking duo Joel and Ethan Coen with Intolerable Cruelty and O Brother, Where Art Thou? star George Clooney. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide”
Burn After Reading is a film done by the same goofball Joel Coen who did that terrible movie No Country For Old Men. It’s about the same level of intelligence as that film.
In fairness, there are a few funny parts of this movie and the acting is done pretty well, except I did see George Clooney’s character already in “O’Brother Where Art Thou”. John Malkovich was really great in this movie, but his CIA character was nothing short of nuts. However, the acting couldn’t save this movie because it doesn’t do anything except take you through a twisted world of strange individuals all intermingled in some kind of an affair.
I didn’t like it and thought at best it was a rental, but I would probably skip it all together. Becky liked it a little more than I did and thought it would make for a good rental.
