Burn After Reading

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I’ve grown to become a big fan of the Coen Brothers, though at one time they’re movies annoyed me to no end. Now that they have the moniker of “Oscar Winners” to their credit, it might be a little easier for me to finally accept them. Oh, who am I kidding; maybe I’ve liked them all along.

  • Excerpt: One of the true tests of a great writer/director, I believe, is versatility. A decent filmmaker can find their niche and stay in a comfort zone, churning out a very similar movie over and over again.

  • Conclusion: 'Burn After Reading' is the Coen Brothers at their slightest. I'm all for filmmakers having a little fun, but this hardly ranks as a particularly memorable (or all that funny) outing for the Oscar-winning duo. This Blu-ray is likewise a decent effort, but not spectacular.

  • Conclusion: Burn After Reading gets an easy recommendation as a BD done right, presenting the most unique comedy this year. It delivers solid picture, reference sound and a fresh look at tears in our social fabric, with a bit of espionage thrown in for good measure.

  • Excerpt: After years wasted on painfully average comedic fare, the Coen brothers wowed everyone last year with their gritty Texas thriller No Country For Old Men , and the world stood up to pronounce the brothers rejuvenated. Now it’s 2008, and the Coen brothers are back again.

AV Club
11 September 2008
  • Excerpt: In the opening scene of the Coen brothers' Burn After Reading , the camera takes a long drop down from space, then lands in a hallway at CIA headquarters. It's found a true corridor of power, a place for people who know what's happening and can make the world move in the direction they choose.

27 August 2008
  • Summary: After their triumphant dramatic success with "No Country for Old Men," the Coen brothers revert to sophomoric snarky mode in "Burn After Reading."

  • Conclusion: If No Country For Old Men was vintage port, Burn After Reading is a shot of tequila: eye watering and hard to swallow, but the after-effect is terrific.
