Review: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

Tina Fey’s new movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is based on The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the memoir by American international journalist Kim Barker about her experiences in Pakistan and Afghanistan. We follow Kim Barker as she arrives in Kabul, knowing nothing of the world outside of America. We see her stories about Islamic militants and shaky reconstruction efforts, which were soon overshadowed by the bigger news in Iraq. This is a darkly comic, real-life look at the absurdities and tragedies of the “forgotten war,” finding both humor and humanity.

Review: Zootopia
