FROM THIS EPISODE

towelhead.jpgBurn after Reading, the new black comedy from the Coen Brother, and starring George Clooney, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich Tilda Swinton and Brad Pitt, could just as well have been called Forget after Seeing... Towelhead, directed by Alan Ball, the Academy Award-winning writer of American Beauty and Six Feet Under, and adapted from the novel by Alicia Erian, is a bleak coming-of-age comedy set in suburban Texas during the first Gulf War.
