A Great Film, But The Sexual Content And The Bad Language Are Unnecessary!

Dissatisfied with the state of her career covering low-profile stories, television journalist Kim Baker (Tina Fey) agrees to take a short assignment as a war correspondent in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom, to the disappointment of her boyfriend, who also spends a lot of time traveling. Assigned low-budget living quarters with other international journalists, she begins friendships with noted Australian correspondent Tanya Vanderpoel (Margot Robbie) and openly lecherous Scottish freelance photographer Iain MacKelpie (Martin Freeman). After a period of adjustment aided by her Afghan "fixer" Fahim Ahmadzai (Christopher Abbott), she begins taking well to the assignment, eliciting frank remarks on camera from soldiers questioning the value of their assignment there, and putting herself in harm's way to capture combat incidents on video. American Marines commander General Hollanek (Billy Bob Thornton) takes a dim view of her, as an inexperienced nuisance.

Despite the danger, Kim stays in Afghanistan for months, then years beyond her original assignment. She catches her boyfriend unprepared with a middle-of-the-night video call, and finds him with another woman, ending their relationship. Against her better judgment, she begins a sexual relationship with Iain, which over time also develops into a more personal one. Although her status as a woman presents challenges in a society which places restrictive roles on women, she also uses it to her advantage, gaining access to women in a village who explain that they've been sabotaging the US-built well because they welcome the daily walk to the river away from the men, and recklessly carrying a camera under a burqa to record a religious demonstration. She also walks a tightrope, taking advantage of the thinly-veiled sexual interest of Afghan government figure Ali Massoud Sadiq (Alfred Molina) to use him as a source. Fahim – who treated opium addicts before the war – cautions her, pointing out that danger can be like a drug.

Despite their mutual friendliness, Kim remains in competition with other journalists for stories and for resources from their employers back home. Kim flies to New York to argue for more support from her network's new boss, only to discover that Tanya is slated to take over from her. Meanwhile, Iain is kidnapped for ransom while traveling cross-country to cover a developing story that Kim had been working on. Kim returns "home" to Afghanistan, where she blackmails her "friend" Ali for information about Iain's whereabouts, and impresses upon Gen. Hollanek the political value to him of rescuing Iain. The mission – accompanied by Kim's cameraman – is a success, both militarily and journalisticly. But Kim begins to see the danger that she is putting herself in, bids farewell to her colleagues and to Fahim, and returns to the U.S. to stay.

After returning, she looks up a soldier (Evan Jonigkeit) who was transferred because of his on-camera comments to her, and subsequently lost both of his legs to an IED. She tries to apologize for the consequences of her actions, but he refuses to let her take the blame. She moves on to an on-camera desk job, where she later finds herself interviewing Iain, who is going to be in New York soon, and invites her to meet him for a drink.

Rated R For The Sexual Content, Bad Language And Violent War Images.

Well balanced movie...

W.T.F. is a movie which tries to belong in too many genres simultaneously, including Comedy, Drama, Romance, War, Action, Documentary, and has a statement to make about pretty much everything including long-distance relationships, politics, professionalism, cultural differences etc. etc.

Without excelling in any of that, it manages to be a well balanced movie in the 110 minutes of its duration.

Tina Fey plays Kim Barker, a real person and an actual journalist, who is dissatisfying from her career covering low profile stories, and decides to go to Afghanistan as a war correspondent for a few months, or so she thought...

The movie has a good structure. It starts as comedy, something you might expect because of the main actress, but soon the situations become real and more dramatic.

The rest of the cast includes well known actors like Alfred Molina, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Margot Robbie.

Overall: Don't expect a comedy because of Tina Fey. It starts like that but it evolves to other genres really quick. It might not be a great movie but it's not boring and you get something out of the inner journey of the protagonist. How easy is to feel unnatural situations as normal when you are a long way from home...

Tina Fey may Strike Gold in 2017!

I've just returned home from watching "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot." I don't know how to begin to explain how intelligent, perfectly paced, unpredictable and spot-on the film is. They got everything right.

Tina Fey as "Kim Baker" deserves an Oscar. This is by far her best performance yet, but as with anything Tina Fey is attached to, you'll see nothing but excellence. She is stunningly brilliant in her journey from utterly green, sheltered, cube farming news writer to seasoned, battered, weary war correspondent. Martin Freeman was equally captivating as Scottish correspondent "Iain MacKelpie." His journey from jaded journalist to the realization that this life, as "Kim" says, "isn't normal", is just as engaging.

The supporting characters fully flesh out their roles becoming very real characters that you know and understand, especially Christopher Abbott as "Fahim Ahmadzai," the driver. His farewell scene with Ms. Fey was beautifully touching and at the same time respectful of the cultural divide between US and Afgan etiquette. Evan Jonigkeit won the end of the film with his explanation of his own journey through losing his legs. "You embrace the suck; you move the f*ck forward." Oorah, Sir.

Do not go into this film expecting a comedy. This is a dramatic portrayal of life as a war correspondent, with intelligent humor sprinkled throughout in equal measure to moments of terror. It hits every nerve and every note. It's extraordinary all around.
