Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 09/18/2008
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he brothers have conjured a crazy-quilt comic thriller that takes on our growing national stupidity in the form of a sex farce. The result is wildly funny."
USA Today - 09/12/2008
"This latest offering from the Coen brothers is an outlandish dark farce/spy spoof with some hilarious characters and quotable lines."
Los Angeles Times - 09/12/2008
"Pitt, a newcomer to the Coen's world, is completely at ease with this material....The actor matches McDormand laugh for laugh playing a doltish accomplice who means well but is not really cut out for the espionage game."
Total Film - 11/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "BURN AFTER READING has some outstanding comic highlights -- many of them courtesy of Pitt himself. Loose-limbed and absent-minded, his hyper performance stays the right side of mannered."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2008
"[T]he dialogue pops as usual with musical idiom....[The] perfectly shifting plot mechanics hold appeal in an era wanting for screenwriting basics."
Empire - 11/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "This is precision-built madness. Beneath these chattering lunatics and the pinballing plot lies an intricacy worthy of Kubrick."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/26/2008
Included in Entertainment Weekly's 2008 Films Of The Year -- "[T]he Coen brothers' richest caper since FARGO. Like that film, it's an acrid thriller in which ordinary people commit desperate crimes."
Total Film - 02/01/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Pitt amuses, Clooney gurns, McDormand crinkles and Malkovich steals the show."
