Two fitness gym employees find a disk containing the memoirs of a retired CIA analyst, which triggers an intricate series of unexpected and comical events. A hilarious dark comedy, featuring an ensemble cast of quirky characters. Brilliant attention to detail. Well plotted seemingly random comedic situations, bordering on the absurd, that weave into an intelligent political satire. An deep and original script, often cruel but nevertheless funny and engaging.
Signature direction from the Coen brothers, this time in a much different form than their previous works. Excellent cast of some of the most talented actors of this generation.
