Burn After Reading can be seen on M-Net Movies Showcase DStv Channel 108 at 20h00 tonight (August 15).

Directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen in 2008, this comedy crime movie stars George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich and Brad Pitt.

The Coen Brothers, Joel and Ethan, gathered a formidable cast anchored by Oscar winners George Clooney and Frances McDormand for a trademark black comedy punctuated by human folly, which inevitably leads to disaster.

Osbourne Cox, a low-level CIA operative with a drinking problem, resigns in anger when he is demoted and sets out to write a tell-all tale as an act of revenge. His story falls into the hands of a pair of lowlifes who think they can sell it or blackmail the writer, setting off a series of outrageous events.
