Burn After Reading

HERE!

Some days you just need a good laugh. For those of you that need a laugh about now our next Rialto Recommends is the Coen Brothers 2008 romp BURN AFTER READING starring George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton and Brad Pitt. The one sentence description of the plot from IMDB is in itself a Coen Brothers gem: A disk containing mysterious information from a CIA agent ends up in the hands of two unscrupulous and daft gym employees who attempt to sell it. Newsweek raved "BURN AFTER READING is a blackly comic illustration of Murphy's Law, set in the Washington world of CIA espionage, and populated with a cast of delusional dunces who are a wonder to behold." While Rolling Stone said "It would be no country for movie lovers without the Coens. They still manage to run unmuzzled while the rest of Hollywood runs scared." The LA Times proclaimed "Joel and Ethan Coen have such a distinctive creative palette that there ought to be a paint color named after them." What do you imagine a Coen Brothers paint color to be? BURN AFTER READING is streaming on Starz and DirectTV or is available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, FandangoNow, Vudu and others HERE.
