Big Screen: Burn After Reading

On the surface, a very funny, often abruptly violent movie that you could easily just laugh through and enjoy “for what it is.” Dig a little deeper and there’s some very prescient criticism of the (practically defunct? hello 9/11) US spy system.
Hilarious and very twitchy performances by Clooney, Pitt and McDormand. Over the top and really hilarious belligerence by Malkovich.
