The Lost Shitty

Lost City spoiler alert:

Pair it with Burn After Reading for a “Brad Pitt prematurely dies” double feature.

A demarcating difference between the two: after Pitt kicks the bucket, at least Burn After Reading still has the Coens and the remainder of its cast; The Lost City only has the rest of The Lost City, deprived of the briefly-promised comedic ménage of Pitt, Bullock, and Tatum (the post-credit scene seems to suggest Brad’s return in a sequel; how about no).

Another of their demarcation points: the difference between deadpan and just plain dead (DOA, if you will).

The Lost City plays like an unrehearsed staged reading.
