      Like many others I was looking forward to watch the movie ‘Burn After Reading’. This is a comedy where George Clooney and Brad Pitt join forces with the Coen brothers as directors of this movie. Apart from the fact that I much prefer Clooney and Pitt in much more demanding roles, the end of this movie left a lot to be desired.

      • Coen brothers admitted that they started working on the script of this movie while writing also ‘No Country for Old Men’. It seems that they written the roles with all the specific actors in mind, with the exception of the actress Tilda Swinton.

        George Clooney was working on a project in the same area. This is the second movie for George with the actress Tilda Swinton and also the second team up with Brad Pitt after the ‘Ocean’ trilogy.

        ‘Burn After Reading’ is the movie where we see Brad Pitt with a crazy hair cut and George Clooney with a crazy life style! Apart from this, this movie failed to impress me with its conclusion!
