Two Line Reviews - #257

Movie: Burn After Reading (2008)

Plot: A CIA agent's confidential document reaches a gym locker due to his careless wife who has a relationship with a statesman. Two gym employees try for ransom at the documents' expense. In the process, all the above mentioned characters meet at several points and make for a riotous comedy of errors.

  • Comedy seems to be an easy genre for the Coen Brothers. This film is ample proof for such a claim. The presentation is so lively.
  • Among actors, it is the gym employee played by Brad Pitt that steals the show with a hyperactive show which brings riotous fun.
  • Not far behind are George Clooney & the lypo-seeking Frances McDormand with their memorable roles.
  • The theatrical scenes carry the brothers' stamp.
Throughly entertaining fun film!
