These are functioning morons, they walk and work among us. And they are brilliant and funny and in spite of the screwball-comedy nature of the story, they are completely believable.

, Frances McDormand might get nominated for an Academy Award in a supporting role. She was great.

The Coens are loopy stylists, and it's often amusing to watch this comedy of errors unfold. But after a masterpiece like No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading is classified as disposable.

For fans of the Coens... it suggests, especially on the heels of No Country for Old Men, that they have rediscovered their cinematic vision after several lean years.

On screen, delusional schmoes are more fun than smart people, and in the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, the imperious former spook played by John Malkovich accuses his blackmailers...of heading a league of morons.

A hilarious and intelligent comedy and a worthy new member of the Coens' tradition of excellence.

Burn After Reading is a comedy that makes fun of almost everything, reminding you that almost none of it is laughing matter.

The Coens are having none of it. The dopes we encounter every day are the real dopes, the creeps are the real creeps, the people in and around power who seem so stupid and venal really are stupid and venal...

A statement on imperial power and its sledgehammer approach to human life? Sure, why not. By the end, audiences will be as indifferent as the filmmakers.
