Burn After Reading

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Review

“A note? Highly classified shit found? Hello! Anybody lose their secret CIA shit?” I loved it. Probably should go into more detail than that, but I’m not a film reviewer. But Brad Pitt’s dancing was a highlight. That, and the two CIA agents who periodically share intense duologues deep in the labyrinthine bowels of Langley. […]

A father, his son, the mother (seen only in over-used flashbacks)…and in case that’s not enough to hold your interest, a LOT of cannibals. For what American horror movie is complete without backwater cannibals? I don’t want […]
