Movie Review: War Machine

War-Machine-brad-pitt-poster

War Machine looks like a movie about a bunch generals sitting in a room planning a war, written by a bunch of generals sitting in a room writing a book about a bunch of generals sitting in a room planning a war. That is to say, this movie has a wildly inconsistent tone and confusing message–just like the Afghanistan counterinsurgency war portrayed in the film. Brad Pitt’s portrayal of General Stanley McChrystal, I mean, Glenn McMahon, is brilliant. Actually, I found all of the actors portrayals of their respective roles to be amazingly accurate and entertaining. 4/5 stars.
