Movie of the week: Burn After Reading

A bit of a tough decision for this week's movie pick. First we have Pacino and De Niro in their second movie working together and, hopefully, it'll be every bit as BA as Heat.

However, despite the dynamic duo's latest offering of Righteous Kill, my recommendation for this week is going instead to Burn After Reading.

Not only is it written and directed by the Coen brothers, but Burn After Reading also features a cast starring George Clooney, Frances McDermand, Bradd Pitt, Tilda Swinton and John Freaking Malkovich. *head explodes*

After last year's gritty, dramatic and powerful No Country for Old Men, I'm ready for a return to black comedy from two of the genre's best contributors.
