Out of all of the Coens’ films, this one had me laughing the most. There’s a short but hilarious scene at the very end, a perfectly delivered conversation between J.K. Simmons as a CIA superior officer and another actor discussing the events of the film that we’ve just seen, and they’re as incredulous as we are. As for the rest of it, Pitt and Malkovitch steal the show for the majority of the film, they’re too good here. Watch this movie! Next week is “A Serious Man.”
