If you listen to podcasts and want to listen to a good one discuss The Coen’s Latest. Check out /Filmcast’s episode 17. They devote the episode to a review of “Burn After Reading”. If you like it why not subscribe, it’s a good general film and TV podcast that I listen to whenever I’ve got time.
Here’s a few reviews.
I’ll save you sometime though. The move looks and sounds good on Blu-Ray but it isn’t really necessary for this type of film. The extras aren’t too exciting either. If that wasn’t enough to dissuade you from buying it, why not buy it now!
Not a bad follow up to “No Country For Old Men”.
In an interview over at Ain’t It Cool News George Clooney mentioned something unusual. He states that Joel, Ethan, and he are going to begin work on a project this spring called “Burn After Reading”. He discribes it as “really fun, really funny.” “No Country for Old Men” is a lock at this point, they will begin shooting in May. What is Clooney talking about? He’s the source for 3 different rumored projects “Suburbicon”, “Hail, Caesar!”, and now “Burn After Reading”. Note to self… Never trust a quote from George Clooney.
According to ClooneyStudio.com George will finish work on “Michael Clayton” in April. After which he’s stating he’ll begin work on “Burn After Reading”. The Coens will just be starting No Country. It’s also to be noted that he’s described this project as the third in his “idiot trilogy” with the Coens. Exactly the same way he described “Hail, Caesar!”. Is this a new name for Hail, Caesar? Perhaps Clooney is being misquoted and he’s actually talking about Spring 2007. This all remains to be seen.
