Burn After Reading maintains comic balance, and after so many smart, gutsy Coen movies (many in the note of madcap), that shouldn't be a surprise.

It might be the same old song, but I could watch these guys play it over and over again.

Seldom has a comedy about such thoroughly dumb individuals been so engaging, or so insightful.

A comedy so stupid, it doesn't realise it's a comedy. If intelligence is relative, then ignorance is bliss.

September 28, 2011
A quirky tale of lust, greed, vanity, idiocy and ineptitude that spreads its giggly ripples through the bureaucratic buildings and leafy suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Coen fans will also enjoy their distinct brand of whip-cracking dialogue, which is almost musical in its rhythms.

Sure Burn After Reading is disjointed, fragmented and frustrated. But that's the point.

It's a just-for-funsies caper, and the Coen brothers seem to revel in it, helped along by an impressive cast that gleefully follows their lead.

a quirky, delicious comedy with an A-list cast clearly enjoying every moment of their screen time

Una disparatada comedia que le toma el pelo a la (des)inteligencia norteamericana, de la mano de un puñado de personajes absurdos animados por un estupendo elenco.

Influenciados pelos mesmos clichês que comprometem tantas produções do estilo, os próprios personagens de Queime Depois de Ler parecem não saber diferenciá-los da realidade.

Showcases a pitch-black comic sensibility that will either attract or repel moviegoers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

All in all though, fun times. I look forward to revisiting it again in the future, like most Coen bros movies.

Tries to be "The Big Lebowski" of the War on Terror.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Even though Burn After Reading is often funny, it rarely achieves either the hilarity of Intolerable Cruelty or the iconic goofiness of The Big Lebowski.
November 9, 2008
It's like a spy thriller, but with no spies and no thrills.

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.
