Film synopsis

We rented "Burn After Reading" from Blockbuster.
We spent the first 20 minutes wondering what was going on.
The next 25 minutes starting to think we might see where it was headed.
And then spontaneously started cracking up close to the hour mark.
The movie is crazy and bizarre and yet totally engaging.
And that's what it's like watching a movie by the Coen Brothers.

I fell asleep during it so I didn't catch on. Eric has such a hard time keeping me awake during most movies lately.

Of course, I've always had a knack for sleeping. Even during amazing performances - like acoustic piano Bruce Hornsby for one...
