Burn After Reading is a weird movie. It takes everything that makes a good spy flick and turns it on its head. You can't help but incredulously laugh at what happens. This is all about oddballs.
The good. Excellent acting. Totally off the wall characters, actions and situations, yet completely logical. Story with twists within twists. Well paced scenario. Solid dialogs. Nice action.
The actors. George Clooney, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, and John Malkovich play disturbingly crazy roles stuffed with delusion and heavily dosed with stupidity. While Richard Jenkins, David Rasche, and J.K. Simmons seem almost out of place as the standard bearers of reason.
The bad. Since it's so bizarre, it won't please everyone.
The ugly. Nothing.
The result. Offbeat and cooky comedy. Don't think you'll see your run of the mill kind of film and you'll have fun.
