Burn After Reading

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS

Last night, Viki & I watched "Burn After Reading", the latest offering from film writers & directors Joel & Ethan Coen, which had had fairly good reviews (I think), and which I had been looking forward to seeing... being a fan of some of their earlier work like "Fargo" and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"...

I still can't decide if I liked it or not... there were bits that were glossed over (like the whole dumping of Brad Pitt's character's body, and how George Clooney's character cleaned up the evidence), and it seemed a bit "rushed" for me... like a 2-hour+ movie condensed down into 90 minutes...

But there was a scene... a particular scene... 51 minutes into the film (and if you've seen it, you'll know EXACTLY what bit I'm referring to)... that made both me and Viki's jaws hit the floor... then we burst out laughing... then we had to rewind the dvd... and watch it again in slow-mo!

Now, if you haven't seen the film, click here for the bit... but not if you have a sensitive disposition!
