Another movie I’ve discovered thanks to The New Yorker: War Machine on Netflix with Brad Pitt and Anthony Michael Hall.
Hall said that “War Machine” was the greatest opportunity of his career: “Brad Pitt started calling me ‘the Pulverizer’ on set! What a goddam honor! I felt like Nathan Hale reporting to George Washington. Brad saw that I was a little too committed—committable, even—and he said, ‘Mike, it’s great to be prepared. But it’s also great to be open to surprises throughout the day.’ And I went, ‘O.K., that’s why you’re Brad Pitt and I’m not.’ It helped me be a deeper listener.”
