Being John Malkovich (1999): I'm a big fan of weird movies, and I've like Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman's other work, but for some reason I don't really care for this movie. It usually surprises people when I tell them that, because they know my taste in movies.
Didn't like this movie either, but then again I had no prior expectations
Crash (2004) - most likely the biggest "meh" movie to receive an Oscar for best picture. I gave it a shot but wasn't drawn in or impressed. The only good thing about Crash in my opinion was Sandra Bullock's performance.
Oscar awards tend to be pretty hit-and-miss IMO , I wouldn't use them as a guarantee of enjoyment.
I like that movie, but BURN AFTER READING is the one that did not work for me; didn't really go for the humor and it shifted tones too abruptly. The only thing I liked was J.K. Simmons' character. And I usually love the Coens too.
strange isn't it, BURN AFTER READING is Coen brothers at their (near) best for me, almost up there with FARGO...
