Burn After Reading Impressions

It's No Country for Old Men, but I thoroughly enjoyed Burn After Reading, the latest from Joel and Ethan Coen. I laughed a lot and enjoyed the intricately woven spy-comedy story. Pitt and McDormand were standouts in particular, but the film also featured great performances from Clooney, Malkovich, Simmons, and Swinton. I encourage you to check it out.

i dunno. i liked it, but also thought it could have been funnier. the few scenes with simmons were fantastic though.

do you have any guess when the film took place? it seemed to be pre-9/11 but post-cold war. there's a putin photo on the wall of the russian embassy, which means it had to be after 12/31/99.
