Burn After Reading (2008) – Movie Wallpaper – George Clooney & Frances McDormand


I love this picture of George Clooney and Frances McDormand in a movie theater in Burn After Reading. The most important question for those that prefer their Coen Brothers cinema to be more No Country serious is when will they return to a film like that? At the moment there really isn’t such a film in their pipeline until Hail Caesar (2009 or more likely 2010 after they make dark comedy A Serious Man), which is a 1920’s period piece centered around a William Shakespeare stage play, Julius Caesar (wiki). stage play. As for me, the film of theirs that I most look forward to is their take on one of my all-time favorite films, Gambit. I discovered Gambit at one of the Tarantino film festivals and mark the poster I have for it as one of the most cleverly conceived – you can spoil the ending, just don’t spoil the beginning.

Burn After Reading recently screened at the 65th Venice Film Festival and upcoming will be at the Toronto International Film Festival. The US release follows shortly thereafter.
