This is the perfect comedy.

Cynical. stupid as bricks, subtle, deadpan = EVERY STYLE OF HUMOR IS EXPLORED

I mean, that's not what's so difficult in making Burn After Reading.

What's difficult is the presentation in Burn After Reading. The process of making this mess of a plot comprehensible, coherent, and understandable; making characters animated but very relate-able; and Brad Pitt's iconic smile before his brains are blown out.


Similar to my Hereditary review, I am pretty much just saying that, "this movie was really hard make, and since it was successful in doing it's very difficult ambition, it is an achievement".

Seeing two achievements, one for the first time and another for a second time, is pretty wild, ngl.

December 15th was a fun day. Bobby, remember to give yourself days like December 15th.
