Sat 11/19: Burn After Reading (Netflix)
There is always time on the weekend for a great movie, and luckily Netflix is adding a great one to your queue this week. The Coen brothers have become for their versatility in genre and their incredible ability to mix elements of darkness into their comedy. Burn After Reading is no exception, following a number of intermixing storylines that mingle in small local gym in Washington, D.C. John Malkovich is thrilling as a disgruntled CIA analyst whose life begins to fall apart, George Clooney is comical as a sleazy adulterer, and Brad Pitt is delightful as the dimwitted personal trainer. It is exactly the masterpiece of absurdity you would expect from the brains behind The Big Lebowski and Fargo.
