Burn After Reading Out On Friday

Burn After Reading is the Coen Brothers’ first film since the Oscar-winning No Country For Old Men, so it’s certainly something to get excited about. The reviews have been coming in, and so far, it’s faring decently well. But I’ve read mixed things about it, and the top critics on Rotten Tomatoes seem to agree, with it getting a flat 50% on the TomatoMeter. I certainly want to see it, even if it gets the worst reviews imaginable. I’m too much of a junkie for the Coen brothers. But if it doesn’t get sky-high, spectacular reviews, I really don’t think it matters much. What was everyone expecting? Another masterpiece? The fact that the Coens pulled off such magnificence with Fargo was amazing in and of itself. The fact that they repeated such brilliance for a second time with ‘No Country‘ is truly astounding. We’ll see how it goes once the reviews pan out and the scores really settle. But as I said, it’s a Coen Brothers film. The reviews are really only a determinant for whether I see it in theaters or on DVD. Heh.

You can watch the trailer for the film below.

    A stellar cast and the usual percolating plot of the Coens combine in one of their most entertaining crime comedies to date. Funny stuff with Clooney, McDormand and Malkovich frame a breakthrough comedic performance by Brad Pitt.
