Product Description
Columbia Pictures Burn After Reading WS on Blu-Ray DiscAmazon.com
After the dark brilliance of No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading may seem like a trifle, but few filmmakers elevate the trivial to art quite like Joel and Ethan Coen. Inspired by Stansfield Turner’s Burn Before Reading, the comically convoluted plot clicks into gear when the CIA gives analyst Osborne Cox (John Malkovich) the boot. Little does Cox know his wife, Katie (Tilda Swinton, r… More >>

  1. Just reviewing the reviews, it sounds like I would want to BURN the movie AFTER VIEWING it.
    Rating: 1 / 5

  2. Utterly empty plot that aside from the weakly interesting characterizations portrayed by Brad Pitt and George Clooney, leave the film just so horribly devoid of any potential entertainment value it could quite possibly be the worst piece of crap I’ve ever seen. Right behind this garbage is the movie Babylon in negative entertainment value.

    I was with family at the theater to see BaR and couldn’t tolerate viewing it past the first hour — I just kept hoping it would improve but it got so nauseatingly bad to the point we felt we had to leave. I noticed we were the first to abandon our movie seats but several others followed suit soon afterward. I just can’t believe someone made the effort to produce this. It comes off like it’s trying to emulate Fargo in lightheartedness but that’s deceptive and almost immediately spirals down into the most gutless, distasteful and utterly disgusting waste of time. I think this movie helps me get why other nations think our country is such a horrid place that it needs to be obliterated, if they are to believe this is what our country finds entertaining…

  3. Not knowing much background information about this movie, we watched it last night and it was the SECOND WORST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN – second only to “No Country for Old Men”, which I now know was made by the SAME morons!!! I only wish I could have given it less than one star on this rating system! Let’s see – it was another movie with a bunch of LOSER characters, with a plot that went absolutely NOWHERE, and no real ending to speak of – absolutely HORRIBLE!!!!! I have now wasted over 4 hours of my life watching movies by these awful filmmakers, and I won’t make that mistake again. Don’t waste your time – this film is one of the WORST ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. This movie should end with the words “Gotcha, you’ve been had.” In the current climate of credit card crunch and a recession, Hollywood releases a movie that flips you the middle finger, and doesn’t have the decency to apologise! Thats $15 of your hard-earned, “blood and sweat salary” which you could have used to feed your family, flushed down the pan.

    Hang on a sec. Are you telling me that Brad Pitt and George Clonney are actually actors? You would have thought that they would have given up by now after all the male directors and producers they have had to sleep with to get their roles. The only decent thing that Brad Pitt has ever been in, is inside Angelina Jolie 😉

    One more thing, the only reason Brad Pitt gets Oscar Nominations is just so they can invite him to the ceremony to make the event more glamorous. Pitt would be the first to admit that he cannot act.

  5. How nice to be a member of the leisure class who’s purpose it is to spend their time and money watching the latest release of Clooney, Pitt, Malkovich, the Coen brothers, or whoever else is either in this movie or associated with it that you are devoted to, just so you can then write about how it compares to an earlier version or whatever else you wish to write about.

    In my case, I look to be entertained during the time I spend watching a movie, and I wish the entertainment to be worth the funds spent for it. This movie meets none of these criteria.
