''What a clusterfuck!''

A disk containing the memoirs of a CIA agent ends up in the hands of two unscrupulous gym employees who attempt to sell it.

George Clooney : Harry Pfarrer

What Burn After Reading results in, is one of the things the Coen Brothers to best and that is black comedy.
It equals them going back to the style of Fargo and some re... read more

A good movie

Following their oscar winning flick, 'No Country for old men', the Coen brothers made this lighter comedy. First of all, there was a really top cast (George Clooney, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton, Richard Jenkins, J.K. Simmons) and they were all pretty good. I must say, even though the premise sounded really awesome, the end-result was pretty funny but nothing more th... read more

Una banda di idioti

Una banda di idioti: il titolo del bel libro di J.K. Toole si adatta bene al nuovo film dei fratelli Coen e alla sua compagnia di stralunati personaggi. La campagna pubblicitaria, ed anche il bel manifesto stile anni ’60, possono indurre in errore: chi andasse al cinema aspettandosi una commedia scatenata, con battute e risate ad ogni passo, rimarrebbe deluso. Si ride, è vero, ma è un riso a d... read more

“I sometimes come up with these urges to watch a random Coen Brothers' film for whatever reason (it must be one of those many weird film-fetishes I have), and tonight I felt like putting this one on. It's far from their best film - in fact it's most definitely their weakest - but I actually wasn't expecting anything that great and I pretty much got what I wanted. The story was pretty dumb and pretty much all of the characters except for Malkovich's and Clooney's were totally obnoxious, but there was a certain charm that I really did like and those two aforementioned characters were actually really funny at times.

If you're honestly expecting something like No Country for Old Men or The Big Lebowski or Fargo, then you'll definitely be dissapointed with this film, but if you go into” read more
