Jun 17 2008'Burn After Reading' Poster is My Favorite


It's like the Coen Brothers unearthed Saul Bass, miraculously revived his decaying corpse, and made him design a poster for their new film before sending him back to the eternal slumber of his tomb. In other words, it's pretty awesome.

God, everything about this film looks ace. I hope I never see it, and then I will never be disappointed by it.

Ace, eh? Well, when have the Coens disappointed? Never, I say!*

* Intolerable Cruelty, Hudsucker Proxy, Ladykillers, and the Man Who Wasn't There notwithstanding

Aww that's just awsome

Movie looks fantastic...love the look of the poster, very old fashioned like. Would look great theatre standard size and framed :o!

Tilda Swinton scares me. She played Michael on Constantine and the white queen on Narnia.


Anything with GEORGE CLOONEY 1$ 7H3 $UXXooo000000R0FL$4urus!

The poster underwhelms me. I bet the movie will be great, though.

the poster is all kinds of retro awesome, but spare me barney rubble - brad pitt looks like he smells of dirty laundry & consistently performs like a dead tree. does clooney have to drag him everywhere with him for fuck's sakes?

She was actually Gabriel. I really shouldn't know that, but deep in my shame closet is a copy of Constantine.

practical joke film. I just saw some related blogs on horsematch.com. It's far interesting than this film.

Emily: The Hudsucker Proxy is the best Coen Bros film, in my humble-yet-immaculately-attired opinion.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man. No, really, if you liked it, it's whatever floats your boat. Personally, I saw nothing redeeming in the Hudsucker Proxy. It was like a horrible Coens parody for me. I thought Hudsucker Proxy was the Coen-iest of all their movies, and I feel like that's why it didn't work. It was so over-stylized that it became too glossy: I felt that the characters were lazily developed and that Tim Robbins was mis-cast.
I love the Coen Brothers' other movies so much more, but I can see how their other movies aren't exactly everyone's cup of tea. The appeal of the Coens' films definitely tends towards the cult crowds (not the goat killing ones, the other kind), so it's hard to really argue for one of their movies over the other.
Lastly, I don't doubt you're a snappy dresser, so more power to you.

The poster underwhelms me. I bet the movie will be great, though.
