Brad pitt is off to war, again, with War Machine. Based on the late Michael Hasting’s book, The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan.  It tells the story of the rise and spectacular fall of General Glenn McMahon’s time in Afghanistan.

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist’s no-holds-barred exposé.
