Not sure what the Coen Bros were attempting here, but clearly they had a lot of leeway following their Oscar win with “No Country For Old Men”. “Burn After Reading” had a spectacular ensemble cast, yet everybody from John Malkovich to Brad Pitt simply played a bunch of know-nothings, wandering aimlessly in our nation’s capitol. Do not rent, this film is NOT worth your $ or queue space. However, George Clooney did play a womanizer quite well, almost too well Sarah Larson! Sorry Joel and Ethan, “Burn After Reading” should be renamed “Burn After Viewing”. This film gets the GAS FACE!
