''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

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

Brilliant dark comedy! exceptional acting by the always wonderful Malkovich. A story of how small scale plans evolve into an unrecognizable mess. Very entertaining and ingtriguing the whole way trough. Great cast and evan greater caracters. most frequently used line was probably "what the fuck", but always in good humour and carefully placed. Fucking awesome!

"Katsottu: 27.5.2017, rewatch, DVD Burn After Reading ei yllä läheskään Coen-veljesten parhaimpien elokuvien (Fargo, Barton Fink, Mies joka ei ollut siellä, jne...) tasolle, mutta se on silti ihan viihdyttävä rikoskomedia. Ennen kyllä pidin tästä hieman enemmän. Kai tämä on niin monesti nähty, että alkaa jo hieman kyllästyttämään. Brad Pitt tollona kuntosalin työntekijänä kyllä naurattaa edelleen. "

"There's a certain point where the story of Burn After Reading refers to itself as a clusterf#ck. Which, I guess leads me to the opinion that the point of this movie is simply to be the kind of "entertaining clusterf#ck ball of yarn that only the Bros. Cohen could entertainingly pull off". So, yeah.... for me, that's what I'm gonna stick with as far as the description of this here film. "
