Burn After Reading ★★★★

Caught this on a lazy Fourth of July vacation. The perfect way to spend the day while it was raining near the beach. Grabbed a drink and sat at the pool after watching this when the rain died down.

A film about stupidity and coincidence, and the consequences that come with them. Not as good as the masterpieces the Cohens have gifted us, but nevertheless a hilarious examination of American idiocy and aloofness. Every performance here is pretty much perfect, and the characters these actors play come off as caricatures in a brutal reality. It's an absurdly great contrast.

Brad Pitt as a moron may be one of the greatest accomplishments of the 2000s. What a talented man.
