Brad Pitt Takes On Extremists As The 'War Machine'

Is war something to laugh about?

War Machine (NC16)

Starring Brad Pitt, Anthony Michael Hall, Ben Kingsley

Directed by David Michôd

Brad Pitt’s turn as a four-star US general trying to win the “unwinnable” War on Terror in Afghanistan is a hoot: A buffoonish cross between his himbo gym instructor in Burn After Reading and the badass commando in Inglourious Basterds. The rest of the movie, however, is on less stable ground: Is this supposed to be a satire or a commentary? It’s too jokey to be serious and too serious to be funny. Darn confusing. On Netflix (**1/2)
