Burn After Reading Ain't No Comedy For Old Men



Burn After Reading.
Not A Review.
Banish all thoughts of Oscars,
Forget No Country For Old Men.
This is the Coens back at their dark, kooky best
Ok it's probably not their BEST,
But it's them doing what they do best.
It's not an all out thriller, action, comedy or drama.
It's a Coen movie.
They should be a GENRE all by themselves!



Forget Brad Pitt in Benjamin Button,
There he was all serious serious and whimsical.
Here he was like, WHEE! GAY GYM INSTRUTOR DANCING TO IPOD!
After watching this, you'll be thankful you watched Benjamin Button first.
He is actually really, really, funny here,
In fact, he's probably the best thing about this movie.



Ooh, and John Malkovich also damn good.
That fella can really act.
And when he goes berserk,
I doubt even Anton Chigurh would stand in his way.
He won't need a fucking air gun,
All he needs is an axe
(And a very very stiff drink)



This is a movie about idiots,
About how intelligence is relative.
And oh my god are the people here stupid.
Not stupid as in slapstick kick my balls stupid.
As in OMG MISGUIDED DELUDED BITCH stupid.
And why is everyone sleeping with each other?
So it's a movie about stupidity AND sex, huh?
Awesome.



I absolutely LOVED the movie,
Especially the DIALOGUE.
Which was fucking brilliant.
Especially the CIA suits talking about the whole affair.
That was absolutely brilliant.
No, really, you HAVE to listen to what they say closely,
And the WAY they say it.
It's brilliant, trust me.
