Burn after Reading

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

Today’s cinema outing was to see Burn after Reading a film more in the style of a 1970s or 1960s slow burning thriller than the big action thrillers usually made today. There were no car chases or fight scenes, no high tech gadgets or flash cars and not one of the characters was remotely competent at what they did. What it had was well drawn, flawed, interesting characters who tangled up in each others lives through their petty little schemes and inadiquacies. Possibly a little slow for a lot of film goers but I enjoyed it.
