My kind of humor.

  • Excerpt: If you've seen Burn After Reading, then you know exactly what kind of humor I like. I'm a fan of the Coen Bros., and I'm excited for their latest film 'Inside Llewyn Davis'. So with that said, why not review some Coen Bros. movies? Burn After Reading had me laughing for the majority of the movie, because I have a very odd taste in humor. I like black comedy, mashed with quick and British humor. This movie shows elements of all of them.

  • Summary: For every No Country for Old Men they deliver, the Coens create a Burn After Reading - a cynical, madcap comedy featuring a variety of eccentric characters born out of the screwball comedy genre. The ensemble cast, which features a number of distinguished actors who aren't afraid to get silly, makes the witty and often macabre script work.

"Burn After Reading" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo, FilmCrave
10 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Two gym employees try to blackmail an ex CIA agent in the mistaken belief that they have stumbled on some sensitive material and wackiness ensues. Burn After Reading I think was trying to recreate the marriage of witty comedy and bleak criminality of Fargo but somehow they don't sit together anything like as well here. The cast is exceptional, but every character is basically a self serving asshole with the possible exception of Brad Pitt, who is just an idiot.

  • Summary: The Coens deliver their (un)usual brand of comedy in full force. It balances out an ensemble cast of characters (all varying degrees of dumb), while delivering a complex story that all comes together in the end. This feels more dark than any of their other comedies, but that just makes it all the more enjoyable.

  • Summary: The Coen's funniest and most cynical film to date, 'Burn After Reading' is a misanthropic delight!

  • Excerpt: This movie kept me very entertained, which I was pleased with because I heard some awful things about it before viewing. I thought it was very funny and the all star cast was awesome. I did feel that the PQ could have been better with this one, it just wasn't as crisp as some of the others I have seen. Overall though, this one is definitly a rent!
