Brothers' Coen: Burn After Reading


Those of you interested in the the Brothers' Coen cinematic texts, will be pleasantly entertained by this Times feature. A bit says:
"With its complexly interwoven stories, political backdrop and the central presence of a bearded George Clooney, the film comes across a bit like “Syriana for Dummies,” though given the original this seems somewhat redundant. "
I'm voting for this sentence as the best one read today.
A review of the film will ensue.

I'm going to see this for one reason alone: that the brothers Coen made it. Can't think of any filmmaker with more cachet at this point.

I'm going to see it for the great cast. It's not often you see some of these guys in comedic films.

I felt like I was the only person who didn't like Syriana.
