News & Interviews for Burn After Reading
Critic Reviews for Burn After Reading
These are functioning morons, they walk and work among us. And they are brilliant and funny and in spite of the screwball-comedy nature of the story, they are completely believable.
, Frances McDormand might get nominated for an Academy Award in a supporting role. She was great.
The Coens are loopy stylists, and it's often amusing to watch this comedy of errors unfold. But after a masterpiece like No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading is classified as disposable.
Halfway between a good Coen brothers movie and a terrible Coen brothers movie.
Indeed, the spies and thrills don't add up at all. The plot is a total mistake. The characters are madly absurd. The film shouldn't work, but it does.
Audience Reviews for Burn After Reading
This film is just fun and funny. A Coen Bros classic that can't be missed. The characters are expertly drawn and the alluring, winding plot is enjoyable. Great performances from the entire cast. Possibly the least dark Coens' movie.
Another fantastic outing for the Coen Brothers whose quirks and kookiness add charm and additional laughs with repeat viewings. Featuring outstanding work from an all-star cast, the Coen Brothers craft memorable characters and situations that will stick with me forever. I haven't laughed as hard as I do at any other movie in recent memory. The plot is ludicrous and hysterical in equal measure and has the right amount of stupid and smart to work. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I consider Burn After Reading a dark comedy masterpiece.
An insanely hilarious melange of comedy and thriller as one would imagine from the Coen Brothers, with a bizarre story full of characters who are stupid beyond comprehension and great performances by its whole cast, especially Brad Pitt stealing the scene.
