NO COUNTRY, admittedly, was great, but I just can't forget about how much I hated INTOLERABLE CRUELTY I don't even remember if that film was eight hours long, or if it just felt that way, or if that was just the number of times I tried to impale myself while watching it. As such, normally I'd be tentative about getting excited about the Coens' next project, but when they've got George Clooney and Brad Pitt (both of whom give me bro-ners) starring with the Malkovich and Frances McDormand, I think it's okay to start getting pumped. Plus, you know, remember THE BIG LEBOWSKI. The picture is BELOW, click on Clooney's popcorn to enlarge that sucker.


BURN AFTER READING sees Ozzie Coxs (Malkovich), a former CIA agent have his ex-wife (McDormand) steal a disc containing his memoirs and accidentally leaving it at the gym. It is found by a trainer (Pitt) who believes he can use the info to blackmail Cox. George Clooney will play an assassin hired by the CIA to take care of the situation.
Extra Tidbit: I still think that the single greatest delivery of a line, ever, was when Brad Pitt said 'You hit me in the ear!' in FIGHT CLUB.

Doesn't suck

I hate to get into one of these silly fights but Intolerable Cruelty does not suck. The courtroom scenes in paticular were hilarious. It took me a second viewing to appreciate it more, but if you're a fan of old fashion screw ball comedies you'll love it. If you're not, well then you wont. Hate is pretty damn strong to apply here. Save your hate for MEET THE SPARTANS or EPIC MOVIE or some other feeble minded slow thinking fuckwad tragedy/comedy rotting the movie screens.

A Different Opinion . . .

I realize that I am in the minority, but I actually really enjoy(ed) Intolerable Cruelty and even The Ladykillers. I actually find them very entertaining. I can understand that everyone has their opinions (I have mine) and that the more common one seems to be one of dislike towards these movies (though the tomatometer for Intolerable Cruelty is somewhere in the mid 70s on RottenTomatoes), but that doesn't mean the movies are bad. As I've already stated, I thoroughly enjoyed them (Intolerable

As I've already stated, I thoroughly enjoyed them (Intolerable Cruelty more than The Ladykillers) and have yet to see a Coen Brothers movie that I have not appreciated at some level. Watch it, FunDead, and then come back with your opinion. You might be surprised.

Can't Wait

This sounds great. Hopefully, they'll keep churning movies like this and No Country out for a while. Unfortunately, since I'm a perfectionist when it comes to collecting movies, I own both Intolerable Cruelty and The Ladykillers...I just haven't watched them yet

Intolerable Cruelty did suck...but I warmed up to it after a couple of viewings. Personally I think The Ladykillers is ten times worse. I cant even sit through that.

I just figure John Malkovich is like th eperfect actor who HASN'T worked with the Coens before, and while I too loathed "Intolerable Cruelty," George Clooney's the man, and was hilarious in "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
