Harry and Amy from Mum and Mummer Podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Harry’s choice Burn After Reading.


Burn After Reading is the 2008 sex farce caper from the Coen Brothers starring John Malkovich, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton. McDormand and Pitt are dimwitted gym employees who stumble across a memoir from disgraced Malkovich. Mistaking it for top-secret documents they end up in a blackmail plot that goes wrong and at the same time, Clooney and Swinton are having an affair.

Coming straight after the critical success of No Country for Old Men the reaction to this Coen effort was mixed, to say the least. It might be Harry’s favorite Coen caper, but it’s possibly Helen’s least favorite Coen film. On the positive, though it is only 96 minutes long.



Despite Helen’s low scores Burn After Reading still manages to score a very respectable 4.16 overall.
