Burn After Reading (2008)

Burn After Reading
Joel & Ethan Coen
Frances McDormand, John Malkovich, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Brad Pitt
This is an example where the big names couldn't save the movie. And the big name director too!! It feels bored to me and in some way, I thought I was watching Woody Allen's movie, only with more cast as Allen tend to stick to just 2 or 3. It's kinda disappointing with the list of cast screaming good acting but at the end, nothing came out of it. It's hilarious at part especially the part where Brad Pitt was murdered haha.... tat's a good timing and funny to me. And he's funnily annoying, never see him in such a part. Malkovich is his usual eccentric self, McDormand is back to her "Fargo" element and Swinton again is her cold bitch look. sayang........
