Burn After Reading

The Coen Brothers film Burn After Reading is an entertaining character comedy – a bit like The Royal Tenenbaums, insofar as the oddity of the characters is the main source of humour. That said, it is significantly darker and has a bit more of a political message: namely, that we might be wrong to assume that the CIA and comparable organizations are actually competent.

In any case, I found it entertaining and amusing.

In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. I didn’t like that movie very much… I found it choppy and hard to get into. No groove.
