    Default Burn After Reading

    I don't want to spoil anything, so for now I'll just say Brad Pitt was the best part, and the movie was hilarious and I reccomend it. Better then No Country For Old Men (which is one of the most overrated movies I've ever seen!).

    Well, can you tell me what it's about at all without spoiling?

    It's about two fitness and body obsessed gym employees who find the memoirs of a CIA agent, but they think it is a top secret document, so they try to blackmail the CIA agent. There's also a web of cheating couples involved in all the characters.

    Brad Pitt is one of the gym employees, and George Clooney is one of the husbands having an affair with several of the other characters.

    All the characters are kind of weird and outrageous and it's quite funny. It was written and directed by the Coen Brothers, who made No Country For Old Men, which unjustly won best picture last year.

    I have mixed feelings about most Coen Brothers movies.

    To be honest, I was not that much a fan of Fargo. I saw part of The Big Lebowski, and I wasn't too fond of that, either (sorry Sassafrassquatch).

    Didn't see No Country for Old Men, but most of the people (my father) who saw it said it was terrible. And it won a bunch of Oscars, so that is usually a bad sign. In fact, close to the only movie I saw that both won and deserved the Best Picture Oscar was American Beauty.

    I think Burn After Reading looks pretty good. I'll probably wait for Blu-Ray, though.

    The Brad Pitt film I'm looking forward to this year is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, directed by David Fincher.

    If you didn't like Fargo I wouldn't bother watching any of their other movies. I like most, but not all. My favorites are Fargo, Blood Simple, and No Country for Old Men.

    What about The Ladykillers?

    If No Country for Old Men needed a definitive ending, did Punch Drunk Love not have a definitive ending? If so, I'd be able to say although I don't mind not having a definitive ending (e.g., Punch Drunk Love), I would prefer No Country for Old Men to reveal how The Killer ends up.

    But now I'm thinking about how we're not supposed to know his full trajectory because he's all mythical and whatnot and that just sucks.

    I want definition and answers. I will track you down, Coen brothers, at your next reunion.

    Why? I found the ending extremely gratifying.

    I appreciated its originality and really enjoyed some parts, but I absolutely could not tolerate Mr. Cox and his What the FUCK?!'s. It seemed so forced and came across as really annoying and cringe-inducing.

    I laughed so hard at the expression on the guy whose optometrist must have had a sense of humor's face when he was having sex with the Hardbodies woman.
