|05.28.17||Netflix|| I didn't like this one too much. I think for me it was an issue where, usually in these types of things... like in Generation: Kill we have misguided commanders and either the reporter is more present so we're seeing through their eyes or we have some sympathetic low-ranking soldier knowing how messed up everything is. In Generation: Kill you have both of those things, here you have neither. Instead, Brad Pitt's propped up in an effort to follow him, but he's also the misguided commander so i never really want to follow him. Both the reporter and the sympathetic low-ranking soldier are not around enough to feel anything for. So it's kind of like watching a guy you don't like do things you don't agree with for two hours. Not super fun.|
Although, this movie makes prominent use of a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion song too. Coincidence? Maybe Hollywood's finally catching on to the awesomeness of the Blues Explosion!?
