Just saw "Burn After Reading" <MINOR SPOILERS>
Interesting film; I'm not sure if I liked it or not.
Incredible cast, but strange pacing. The story is all over the places and the characters interact in surprising ways. Those elements remind me a bit of "The Big Lebowski," to which BAR has already been compared. Well, let's be honest: BAR is not TBL, mostly because it doesn't have a protagonist you can root for (unlike TBL's The Dude).
Best performances are, IMHO, by John Malkovich as a wronged CIA spook, Brad Pitt as a dim-witted (and pompadoured) gym employee, and Richard Jenkins as Pitt's boss (whose sound advice isn't heeded). Clooney and Tilda Swinton were good but mostly underused.
Wow, I'm really tired, and this review sucks. For now, I'll give the film a B. It's uneven and has more jarring shifts in tone than the usual Coen Bros. movie. That said, the ending is better than that of last year's "No Country for Old Men."
