Midnights: BURN AFTER READING Drinking Game
September 22, 2017 @ 11:55 pm
Drink along to the movie! Drink when you hear code words, when jokes recur, and during spy-film mainstays. Full guidelines will be provided at the event.
“The film is hilarious in patches, shocking in patches, utterly convincing in patches and close to brilliant in patches.” – Salon
“It’s funny, sometimes delightful, sometimes a little sad, with dialogue that sounds perfectly logical until you listen a little more carefully and realize all of these people are mad.” – Roger Ebert
When a disc containing memoirs of a former CIA analyst (John Malkovich) falls into the hands of Linda Litzke (Frances McDormand) and Chad Feldheimer (Brad Pitt), the two gym employees see a chance to make enough money for her to have life-changing cosmetic surgery. Predictably, events whirl out of control for the duo doofuses and those in their orbit. Frequently dismissed as “minor” upon release, Burn After Reading now plays as a singularly predictive political film.
Dir. Ethan & Joel Coen. 2008. 96 min.
Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
