Watch war machine 2017 online free. A rock star general bent on winning the “impossible” war in Afghanistan takes us inside the complex machinery of modern war. Inspired by the true story of General Stanley McChrystal.
Writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) 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.
Afghanistan war films have left to say about the flaky endeavor is that it wasn’t a good idea and was mismanaged by everyone from presidents to political leaders to military generals, then it’s probably time storytellers realize that as much as possible has been mined from the premise. War Machine (directed by David Michôd who is most known for The Rover and Animal Kingdom, and based on Michael Hastings’ novel The Operators)) stars Brad Pitt leading a group of military personnel in and around Afghanistan vainly attempting counterinsurgency, which is basically Americans trying their damnedest to convince the civilians of the country that they’re the good guys in the ongoing war and win their trust, rather than sitting idly by with the neutrals potentially joining the enemy.
