Burn Before Seeing

The Coen Bros.‘s latest movie – Burn After Reading – was a total letdown, especially when you consider all of the talent it brought to the table.

Unlike previous cult-hits such as Fargo and, of course, The Big Lebowski, BAR seemed to be lacking all over.  The characters were poorly developed cliches, the writing was nowhere near as sharp as one would expect from the Coens, and ultimately the plot and lack of real (dark or otherwise) humor killed the flick.
