Joel and Ethan Coen’s Burn After Reading red band trailer, you guys:
On days when a new picture surfaces on the internet showing Britney Spears eating Cheetoes with her vagina or proving once and for all that Amy Winehouse has a disease that turns her face into pure sadness, you can almost start to feel bad for celebrities. While anyone in the public eye is open to scrutiny or whatever, I think we’re kind of overusing that argument for why we should be allowed to report on their testicular hygiene or their divorce face as they leave a coutroom. The public has a right to
know avoid thinking about their own sadness! But on days when a movie like this surfaces, where everyone seems to have just made up a character loosely based on themselves and hung out with their buddies in front of a movie camera all day, it’s hard not to get lifestyle envy. In the vein of Ocean’s 11, Ocean’s 12, and Ocean’s 13, this looks like it was probably even more fun to make than it is to watch. It might just be the combination of Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Those guys always seem like they’re having so much fun. I just made that up. No one has ever said or thought anything like that before. Everyone always tiptoes around the glow of ease that surrounds them. Very original. We are doing it, with the whole breaking open new vistas of understanding, guys.
