More Gay Stars and Directors and Screenwriters on TCM: From psychos and psychiatrists to surfers and stage mamas

On the day a U.S. appeals court lifted an injunction that blocked a Mississippi “religious freedom” law – i.e., giving Christian extremists the right to discriminate against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender people, etc. – not to mention the publication of a Republican-backed health care bill targeting the poor, the sick, the elderly, and those with “pre-existing conditions” – which would include HIV-infected people, a large chunk of whom are gay and bisexual men, so the wealthy in the U.S. can get a massive tax cut, Turner Classic Movies' 2017 Gay Pride or Lgbt Month celebration continues (into tomorrow morning, Thursday & Friday, June 22–23) with the presentation of movies by or featuring an eclectic – though seemingly all male – group: Montgomery Clift, Anthony Perkins, Tab Hunter, Dirk Bogarde, John Schlesinger, Tennessee Williams, Gore Vidal, Arthur Laurents, and Jerome Robbins.

‘War Machine’ Review (Netflix Original)

27 May 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Tilda Swinton, Ben Kingsley, Anthony Hayes, Keith StanfieldAnthony Michael HallTopher Grace, Meg Tilly | Written and Directed by David Michôd

The year is 2010. General Glen McMahon (Brad Pitt) is tasked by a committee of civilian leaders with fixing the mess in Afghanistan. What this actually entails is open to debate. Does it mean winning the hearts and minds of the local populous? Or winning the war against the Taliban? McMahon reckons they’re the same thing.

He and his ego-stroking team take a tour of the country, to see the meagre and underfunded efforts being made by the allies to make good on their promise of roads, schools, democracy, and all that good stuff. McMahon finds a desert of broken dreams.

He requests forty thousand extra troops, so that he might exorcise Helmand Province of its elusive evil. In return he gets minimal reinforcements, »

27 May 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Written and Directed by David Michod.

Synopsis:

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 »

Netflix Original Movie Review: War Machine Is a Voyage Into the Absurd

26 May 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

War Machine is a biting satire about the U.S. war in Afghanistan. It's a voyage into the absurd that encapsulates the insanity of never ending armed conflict. Adapted from the highly acclaimed novel, The Operators by Michael Hastings, War Machine is the tale of four star General Glenn McMahon. The character is based on General Stanley McChrystal, whose arrogance and hubris led to an epic downfall. Director/writer David Michod gets top marks for humor and stark realism. War is hell. The film takes aim in a comedic way, but never loses sight of the brutality.

In April of 2010, President Barack Obama was making a beeline out of Iraq; with the war in Afghanistan devolving after years of quagmire. Insert the hardline, true believer, military man to the bone, General Glen McMahon (Brad Pitt). The Special Forces leader in Iraq, and an expert in counter insurgency tactics, McMahon is »

War Machine Review

24 May 2017 4:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

David Michôd’s War Machine marks Netflix’s second assessment of America’s Middle Eastern strategies in barely a month. Fernando Coimbra’s Sand Castle questioned Iraq-war involvement, and now – weeks later – attention is diverted to Afghanistan, 2009. It’s all based on Michael Hastings’ non-fiction “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” an exposé that “questions” General Stanley McChrystal’s 2010 shot-calling. The names may have changed from page to screen, but the message is retained. When invading a foreign land, how is one supposed to broker peace? It’s a confused tactic; one that blurs the rules of war. Good thing a colorful cast of jarheads are there to “make sense” of it all.

Brad Pitt stars as General Glen McMahon, the 4-star legend whose duty is to declare a victorious end to Afghanistan’s ongoing retaliations. Shouldn’t be too hard since the “Glenimal” (yes, »

Topher Grace Praises War Machine Costar Brad Pitt as ‘A Great Leader’

17 May 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Brad Pitt took on the leadership role of his character in his latest film.

The actor plays the larger-than-life Gen. Glen McMahon in his upcoming Netflix movie War Machine, in which he gets to show off his satire chops — and lead a team of men who look up to him. Pitt was surrounded by younger actors in the film, including Topher Grace, who said the dynamic on set mimicked the film.

“That was the great thing about this movie, is that what we were portraying on screen — Brad’s not like that character — but it was kind of the dynamic that you see, »

Brad Pitt Wants Freedom in New Trailer for David Michôd’s ‘War Machine’

11 May 2017 4:46 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In July of 2010, an article appeared in Rolling Stone that effectively ended the military career of United States Army General Stanley McChrystal, the commanding general in Afghanistan. The article found McChrystal and his staff critical of then President Barack Obama and caused a media frenzy for a solid week as pundits debated whether or not McChrystal acted unprofessionally. McChrystal tendered his resignation one day after the article was released online, the author of the article — the late Michael Hastings — expanded it into a book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, and the rest is history. And now it’s entertainment, too.

Netflix, who may or may not make real movies depending on who you ask at Cannes, will release War Machine later this month. Animal Kingdom director David Michôd helms this satire, presented as fictionalized take on McChrystal and his unconventional tactics. »
