In a film 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 anti-establishment, pro-soldier exploration in the form of an absurdist war story 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 his own hubris and a journalist's no-holds-barred expose. War Machine addresses the debt we owe to soldiers to question the purposes to which they are being directed.

The film features an original soundtrack from award winning composers Nick Cave and Warren Ellis (Wind River, Hell Or High Water, Mars, Lawless). Military snares set a sharp cadence beneath the score's eerie synths and strings, instantly reminiscent of Skeleton Tree by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, and the beautiful Hell Or High Water score.

"It is always helpful to be pushed into different worlds that are unique and unknown," said Cave and Ellis. "War Machine demanded a wholly different type of score than we had previously done. Together we made a score that was both light and dark, propulsive and meditative at the same time. We developed a kind of ‘spiritual electronics' that captured both the melancholy and the terrible absurdity of the Afghan war. It was a great pleasure to work with David Michôd, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favorite score!"
