In the movie Burn After Reading, two gym employees (Pitt, McDormand) find a disc with the memoirs of a CIA agent and see potential for personal profit.
I love Mock Squid Soup, but I find myself nursing a headache and leaning towards brevity. My apologies!
Many fine bloggers will give excellent reviews of this quirky flick by the Coen Brothers, and so I will put a little twist on my very small contribution and talk about my favorite actor in the movie.
So many of my favorites to pick from - Clooney! Pitt! McDormand! Malkovich! Skipping Tilda Swinton on purpose... Hey, there's J.K. Simmons ("The Russians?")!
Who to pick? It's hard to avert my eyes from Clooney...
"Appearances...can be deceptive..."
Brad Pitt, you rascal. On the occasion of your nuptials to AJ last week, I wanted you to break into a mini victory dance like Chad Feldheimer. Ooo, I wanted it so!
Pitt's character, Chad, genius of the gym - the most entertaining part of Burn After Reading for me. And that's saying a lot. His bubble headed awkwardness reared its head in every situation; the crazy facial expressions and body language made this "mere good Samaritan" steal each scene.
If this was method acting, he would have had to find a way to lose IQ points; it was worth it.
Unfortunately, all good things must end.
