“Fury” stars Brad Pitt in a movie which portrays a group of world war 2 soldiers who have survived many fights in a tank named, Fury. The movie is well-acted and we learn of the group thru the eyes of their newest recruit, Norman. Norman is a brand new soldier who has not been in nor had any exposure to the war. So his being assigned to Brad Pitt, the Sargeant, was not a pleasant experience.
John le Carré’s 2008 novel “A Most Wanted Man” is full of righteous anger. As morally ambiguous as his classic Cold War novels (“The Spy Who Came In From the Cold,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), “A Most Wanted Man” is about that thin grey line that separates idealists from pragmatists, from those who look at the big picture and those who want immediate results regardless of the consequences.
