Burn After Reading

Rating = B-

I disagree with lots of the real reviewers who thought this movie was a big miss for the Coen brothers. The plot is a little complicated (and certainly contrived), but it is still easy enough to follow. The acting is uniformly fine for a “send up” film. The Coen brothers low opinion of human kind is is nothing new and a lot less violent than in some of their films. And there are plenty of chuckles and some laugh-out-loud moments.
