War Machine Trailer Has Brad Pitt as a General Trying His Darndest to Solve the U.S. Presence in Afghanistan

Give a watch to the trailer to David Michôd’s latest War Machine that follows a well-meaning general trying to make sense of what the U.S. was doing remaining in Afghanistan. Of course, anything dealing with foreign policy is relevant these days, but we’re getting a sense of deliciously wry satire in this film.

We know this might a stretch, but may this, mostly because of Brad Pitt starring in the lead role of a geopolitical dark comedy, be a spiritual sequel of sorts to Burn After Reading?

War Machine starts streaming on Netflix on Friday, May 26th, 2017.
