Burn After Reading (Comedy 2008)

In general I tend to hate anything that the Coen brothers create because their writing and directing skills suck a nut, but this one was actually partially entertaining.

This movie was straight-up crazy. The characters were nuts, their purpose in life was nuts, and yeah....every flowed in between those lines. The movie probably would've sucked a whole lot more if they hadn't have convinced such a great mix of actors to participate. John Malkovich is already a crazy person, Brad Pitt was very believable, and Clooney pretty much played the same character he always does.

I would categorize this film under the black comedy folder, but really it was an insane movie that was a 100% waste of time. I did chuckle a lot though...
