Description

Product Description

An all-star cast, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and John Malkovich, come together in this outrageous spy comedy about murder, blackmail, sex addiction and physical fitness!When a disc filled with some of the CIA’s most irrelevant secrets gets in the hands of two determined, but dim-witted, gym employees, the duo are intent on exploiting their find. But since blackmail is a trade better left for the experts, events soon spiral out of everyone’s and anyone’s control, resulting in a non-stop series of hilarious encounters!From Joel and Ethan Coen, the Academy Award-winning directors of No Country For Old Men and The Big Lebowski, comes this brilliantly clever and endlessly entertaining movie that critics are calling, “smart, funny, and original” (Ben Lyons, E!).

Amazon.com

After the dark brilliance of No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading may seem like a trifle, but few filmmakers elevate the trivial to art quite like Joel and Ethan Coen. Inspired by Stansfield Turner''s Burn Before Reading, the comically convoluted plot clicks into gear when the CIA gives analyst Osborne Cox (John Malkovich) the boot. Little does Cox know his wife, Katie (Tilda Swinton, riffing on her Michael Clayton character), is seeing married federal marshal Harry (George Clooney, Swinton''s Clayton co-star, playing off his Syriana role). To get back at the Agency, Cox works on his memoirs. Through a twist of fate, fitness club workers Linda (Frances McDormand) and Chad (Brad Pitt in a pompadour that recalls Johnny Suede) find the disc and try to wrangle a "Samaratin tax" out of the surly alcoholic. An avid Internet dater, Linda plans to use the money for plastic surgery, oblivious that her manager, Ted ( The Visitor''s Richard Jenkins), likes her just the way she is. Though it sounds like a Beltway remake of The Big Lebowski, the Coen entry it most closely resembles, this time the brothers concentrate their energies on the myriad insecurities endemic to the mid-life crisis--with the exception of Chad, who''s too dense to share such concerns, leading to the funniest performance of Pitt''s career. If Lebowski represented the Coen''s unique approach to film noir, Burn sees them putting their irresistibly absurdist stamp on paranoid thrillers from Enemy of the State to The Bourne Identity. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I usually like the Coen brothers and I’m used to their quirky plots. This movie has no plot.
It is NOT family friendly - sooooo many F-bombs and one completely gratuitous scene involving a dildo.
Do not be deceived by all of the name brand talent. When the movie is over you could care less about any of the characters.

End of the movie pretty much sums it up: A bit character says something like: get back to me when any of this turns into something....Fade out.

The Coen Brothers always get complemented for quirky stories and writing. That didn’t quite work out with Burn After Reading. The story was about disgruntled people and the consequences of their actions.

John Malkovich played CIA analyst Osbourne Cox who gets demoted at his work and quits as a result. He decides to write a memoir to brag about his career. His wife Katie played by Tilda Swinton is a doctor who is cheating on him with Harry Pfarrer (George Clooney) who is a U.S. Marshal. He is sleeping with a number of other women as well. That includes Linda (Frances McDormand) who works at a gym and wants plastic surgery because she’s unhappy with her looks. Things go wrong when a copy of Osbourne’s memoir is left Linda’s gym and she decides to try to make money off of returning it. None of these people are happy with themselves so they make a series of poor choices. The problem is none of the stories are interesting. This is about a bunch of middle aged people who don’t like getting old and try to do a bunch of stupid things to feel younger.

AN UNPOLISHED GEM THAT NEEDS A CHASER

This is probably not one of the Coen brothers’ better-known films, which is a shame because it is a well-constructed farce that appears to have been made 10 years too early, given that it perfectly encapsulates the wackiness of the current political arena (including the Russian element). The plot machinations are so zany that the film needs a chaser; after watching this you’ll need to follow it with a boring mainstream drama film (“Lady Bird” and their ilk) to regain some sense of normal reality.

Although all of the actors nail their performances brilliantly, the film itself is not perfect. Several of the main plot points (including the climax) happen off-screen, leading one to think that perhaps they ran out of time and/or money and weren’t able to finish shooting all of the scenes the script needed, and had to edit together what footage they had.

A remake might not be a bad idea, not only to bring it into the modern era (flash drives instead of CD-ROMs) but also to add the missing scenes that would smooth out the rough bits and make it the polished gem it deserves to be.

Despite an all-star cast (mostly miscast however) the script of this turkey is beyond belief. MOst egregious, it takes a potentially funny premise of stupid blackmailing and turns it from comedy into a string of senseless murders. A gun hanging in a holster in the first act will surely go off in the final act. But this one plugs Brad Pitt in the forehead without even leaving the holster. I am sorry to say that this is complete crap. And I love the C Bros.

A silly mid age woman wants several plastic surgeries to ''reinvent'' herself. She convinces two co-works to break in a person''s house for the money, whom they both get killed for intrusion. Another guy goes into a coma from lieu of events. And in the end silly women gets her money for surgery to tell CIA "what really happened". End of story. There you have it. Honestly, nothing to see here.

This film is very, very dark, however it is also very very funny, it is certainly a very acquired taste of funny as it deals with situations and circumstances which are generally not assumed to be humorous, and at times you do feel a little uncomfortable with the fact that you are finding it funny. John Malkovich is outstanding as the on the edge CIA operative who you see unraveling before your very eyes, and seeing Brad Pitt portrayed as a complete moron and George Cloony as a pathetic loser is just sublime. The premise (without giving anything away) is that each character is having some kind of mid life crisis due to circumstances they are in and those circumstances collide and become entwined with the others and situations escalate and a farce ensues. I would be the first to admit that it is certainly not everyone''s cup of tea and you have to have a pretty unique sense of humour to fully appreciate it and see the humour, but it is a very well crafted film and can be enjoyed on many other levels.

... and unfortunately at the expense of Ricardo Cardoso, Esq. Was going to accord this gentleman reviewer [see 27 July 2019] the standard Comedy Is Subjective courtesy as, well, To Each, Their Own, etc. and just let it pass. But as he further went on to dismiss Coen Brothers cult classic THE BIG LEBOWSKI as “real nonsense” ... he committed a sacrilege which cannot go unanswered! I fear he has completely missed the point. Twice! Methinks he doth protest too much, as it is clear ... he simply does not Get It. Ricardo, me old china, you are clearly not English and so can be excused, certainly forgiven, for not grasping one of the great joys in Life: irony! Obviously “humour is a very serious thing” to you; you laud the slapstick Greats, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, kudos for that (wot, no Laurel & Hardy?). But really, your first venture into reviewing on Amazon is “to warn people” ...? Two whole paragraphs ‘explaining funny’ ...??? What trenchant hauteur! If one needs to ‘explain’ it, one is immediately demonstrating an absence of humour. Perhaps you are the John Malkovich character and his meltdown cuts too close to the bone? And as to Brad Pitt’s character “just making a fool of ... us” ... why are you taking this so much to heart? Both the film’s funny (Clooney, McDormand, Pitt) and straight (Malkovich, Swinton) men/women/thespians are playing to their strengths. I, for one, am really sorry you cannot see it. For myself (and I suspect a great many others), the ‘funniest’ part of BURN AFTER READING is the CIA observing and reporting on every character and their interactions, duly reporting this to higher-ups ... but not knowing, at all, What It’s All About. The two scenes of David Rasche briefing J.K. Simmons ripple with wry irony! Back to THE BIG LEBOWSKI, are you not comforted knowing that, by going with the flow, The Dude is giving his life, his entire being, to Taking It Easy for the rest of us? Are you not aware that ‘Dudeism,’ an entire new branch of Philosophy (not to mention literature and merchandising) now exists, thanks to this Comic Messiah?!! Our sacred high holy day is 6th March, The Day of The Dude, eg. dressing-gowns and White Russians. I recommend you try and practice what He preaches, and perhaps you, too, may achieve, if only a measure of happiness, spiritual fulfilment and inner peace ... ;-)

What strikes me about this film is how they all play such superb incompetent sets of individuals skilled only in one thing and that is being a collection of losers. And as for Linda,s obsession with cosmetic surgery the main theme that runs through this film I have met people like this, and what you would like to tell them is they would be much better off with almost a complete body transplant, and by default that is what she gets in the end, the only one to come out of this grand fiasco with any plus points at all. Brad Pitts bungling incompetence is played to a fine art, whilst George Clooney,s dedicated obsession with his wife''s surprise present is definitely worth seeing, and as for John Malkovich he is continually on the point of meltdown brought about by his employer and his wife''s actions. In conclusion I would say you have to be in tune to this particular humour, which lets face it is tongue in cheek blacker than black.

I had never written a review for Amazon, although I am a long time serving customer. I decided to write this one to warn people who might care to read it. The point is: this movie is NOT funny. Not at all. It was, for me, a complete waste of time and money. Let me try to explain. "Miller''s Crossing", "Fargo", "The Man Who Wasn''t There", "No Country For Old Men" are excellent movies. Despite the fact that they won Oscars (I suppose). Once in every 10 years or so, one very fine movie manages to win an Oscar. I am really a fan of the Coen brothers. But when it comes to humour they become completely hopeless. Humour is a very serious thing, it is not easy to make people laugh. Or to make me laugh, if you prefer, although I enjoy laughing a lot. There are certain comic geniuses who make people laugh: Charlie Chaplin, the greatest of them all, Buster Keaton, an American comic genius, Monty Python, Woody Allen and not many others. The trouble is that to make people laugh you have to be funny, of course, but you must not try to be funny. It is something that comes from within or else it does not. That is the case with this movie. They keep trying to be funny all the time and, of course, they do not succeed. Brad Pitt is a very good actor, I even admire his courage trying to play his role, but it is a complete failure, he''s just making a fool of . . . us. Frances McDormand is a magnificent actress, I will never forget her in "Fargo", it is simply a perfect performance. And she is even funny in that movie, because she is not trying to be, she is acting honestly. Although the most "funny" part in "Fargo" is played by William H. Macy - a fabulous actor (and Steve Buscemi too). In this movie, however, she tries to be funny, to "exaggerate", and the result is almost painful to watch. Not funny at all. Tilda Swinton is the best of the cast. She never smiles, she never laughs (à la Buster Keaton), she''s not trying to be funny, she just acts very decently. Anyway, the main point about this movie should be: it is NOT funny at all. That is what matters. I remember when George Clooney falls down the stairs after finding an intruder hidden in a wardrobe (oh! what originality!): he''s trying to be funny once again but . . . does it make you laugh? If it does this may be a film for you. If it doesn''t, skip the real nonsense of this movie and switch to the true glorious nonsense of Monty Python. There are several "historical" precedents, of course, in American cinema. Spielberg, a fine director when it comes to "suspense" ("Duel" is one of the best suspense movies I have ever seen, "Jaws" is fine too), also tried to be funny: "1941". A complete disaster, really painful to watch, it could not elicit a single smile from me. And the Coen brothers too: "The Big Lebowsky", real nonsense once again. Let me finish adapting to my purposes an utterance by Woody Allen (which has nothing to do with this movie). When I heard about another "comic" movie by the Coen brothers I reacted with a condescending little laugh. Well, I am certainly not laughing now.
