Burn After Reading

I fell asleep half way through. Nothing in the story line grabbed my interest. There was the potential in the basic idea to create a very tense, comic film. For me this failed. Having 'big name' actors in a film does not guarantee quality. I will not attempt to watch it again, instead I'll be passing the DVD onto very young members of the community.

Superb cast, great tale

Burn After Reading is an excellent comedic story from the Cohen brothers of blackmail, murder, bed hopping and spies is a rare example of an entire cast acting their socks off being such crazy characters that you wonder how it wasn't heaped with awards? Brad Pitt, George Clooney and John Malkovich play beyond their normal zones and give such hilarious performances that you can't help but smile.

Worth Watching.

I did chuckle at this film, it certainly wasn't what I was expecting, as It was quite dark. Ive since heard that this is normal for a coen brothers film. Worth a watch plenty, of swearing and a few twists !
