Burn After Reading - Movie Review

We spent a rainy Saturday afternoon seeing the Coen brothers' latest, Burn After Reading. I'm a fan of most of their work but after No Country For Old Men, I'm a little leery of rushing right out and seeing anything by them. (And can it be that their last film I admired, O Brother Where Art Thou, was released 8 years ago? Goodness.) But there's nothing else on so we thought we'd give it a try and, surprise, surprise, it wasn't half bad. Not the best, slickest thing they've ever done but there were some out-loud laughs and the scenery around Washington DC was great to look at. Convoluted enough plot to keep the surprises coming but it all eventually goes nowhere, really. A light finger exercise at best.
