Like/Dislike

Director: David Michôd

Stars: Brad Pitt, Anthony Hayes, John Magaro, Anthony Michael Hall, Emory Cohen
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4758646/

An absurdist war story for our times, 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.
