When you think of war, the word ‘funny’ never comes to mind, but the David Michod movie War Machine is full of comedy starring Brad Pitt, Ben Kingsley, Topher Grace, Scoot McNairy and Tilda Swinton.
Brad Pitt is appointed in the movie to oversee the Afghanistan war where the American soldiers are fighting for about sixteen years.
The movie is slightly based on general Stanley McChrystal and movie goers are left to wonder whether Pitt can relate to his bumpy journey that included struggling with public image.
McChrystal commanded allied forces in Afghanistan and later was also exposed for his doubts over Obama’s war strategy. As an aftermath he was fired.
Pitt has just split with wife Angelina Jolie.
The empathy for both and question arises whether Pitt can connect with the story.
