I’d forgotten that this was actually a Coen brothers film, until about 10 minutes in when it became obvious that it was. A tale of confusion, adultery and the dream of a better body. John Malkovich has turned into a Great English Actor, who happens to have the misfortune of actually being American. George Clooney plays a paranoid, womanising agent, with eyeliner. Brad Pitt plays a rather funny stoner-type who’s just a little bit vacant. Tilda Swinton plays the very very English wife with an extra-crisp accent and Frances McDormand seems like she could have just stepped out of Fargo.
Darkly funny, with just a touch of “WTF is going on” (in the story that is). Must see!
