Burn After Reading

10 Nov

With Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton, George Clooney.
A promising cast that doesn’t disappoint. Frances McDormand is Linda Letzke, employee at a sports center along with Richard Jenkins -who has a crush on her without her knowledge- and a lovely portrayed brainless Chad (Brad Pitt). I was truly taken by his masterly stupidity. Because let’s face it: in general, this man is cast to play the pretty boy, or the good guy at least.
In this film he is a fitness instructor, meant to be a karikature of that profession. He is the sidekick of Linda Letzke, who is planning a complete makeover of her body with the help of a plastic surgeon. Given that she works at a fitness center, she doesn’t earn enough money to complete this special quest.
Osborne Cox (John Malkovich) is a customer at this fitness center and at one day, looses a valuable item. It is, yes, but not as special as it seems to Chad, who happens to be the one finding it. Still, he and Linda Letzke decide to blackmail Osborne Cox to gain the money that Linda needs for her operations.
And yes, this is just one of the silly storylines. It’s a true beauty and I laughed myself in stitches.
