Surprisingly subdued but entertaining dramedy centered around the Afghan conflict. Tina Fey is Kim Baker, an ambitious reporter embedded in a land where cultures clash and new lives are forged as easily as they are lost.

“Surprisingly subdued but entertaining dramedy centered around the Afghan conflict. Tina Fey is Kim Baker, an ambitious reporter embedded in a land where cultures clash and new lives are forged as easily as they are lost.

The movie's strengths are multitude but it really does an excellent job of showing how ambition unrestrained can bear heavy costs if not kept in check while simultaneously showing us how our perceived control of the lives we lead is fleeting at best. Though this sounds nearly nihilistic, the film does a wonderful job of dissecting this theme with a tactful lightness that suggests that everything is part of the learning process of life.

In addition to this we get an engaging, charming, and talented cast of actors that, alongside Ms. Fey, make spending ti” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- July 2016 (38 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr 53min. First Viewing A surprisingly engaging dramedy about war correspondents in the 2000s, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot doesn't say anything new about the war or the media, but overcomes this by keeping it's focus on a single person's experience. In a way, though mildly reductive, it's, somewhat, How Stella Got Her Groove Back with a dash of The Hurt Locker. Tonal whiplash is in the film's DNA; it goes from slapstick comedy to attempting sobering drama. It doesn't always work, but it's not a"

"10/2/17 A film looking for an identity. Tina Fey plays an American journalist sent to Afghanistan and finds herself lost in a world she doesn't understand. Part factual drama, part comedy, it's the strength of the leading lady and the supporting cast that keeps the film interesting, yet as a piece of satire, it lacks the well-needed bite."

"The jarring shifts between the comedy and drama are not handled very well, but the film has some moments in it worth checking out, even if the film as a whole doesn't quite work. 6.0/10"

"When: November 7th-8th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: DVD from the library. What'd I Think?: Doesn't handle tonal shifts well, but an entertaining, decent look at the Afghanistan war from a reporter's POV. My Rating: 6/10 Other Notes: NA."
