Burn After Reading
Intelligence is relative.
Just a little bit off the top please.
George Clooney ropes in his favourite acting buddy Brad Pitt to co-star in the latest Coen brothers caper, which is a step down from their recent Oscar winner. The plot is maniac and difficult to summarise, but revolves around a group of interconnected characters who are all after a lost disc with top-secret CIA memoirs. The various characters are related either romantically or through work, and the interconnections lead to unexpected plot twists and surprises. Reviews have been forgiving, seeing as it is the Coen brothers.
