The Guardian has included David’s “War Machine” in their “Most Exciting Biopics of 2017“:
David Michôd’s Afghanistan drama has been around a little while now – it appeared on last year’s equivalent list – but time has not dinted our appetite to see what the Animal Kingdom director does with a faintly fictionalised study of General Stanley McChrystal, who had command of the Joint Special Operations Command in the mid-2000s. Brad Pitt is the general – disguised as one Dan McMahon – Emory Cohen is one of his platoon, Topher Grace his press adviser, with Ben Kingsley, Tilda Swinton and Scoot McNairy also somewhere in the trenches. Netflix paid $60m for this one, so either it’s an imminent masterpiece or a heck of a gamble.
