NEW YORK – Oscar-winning director Ang Lee, whose latest movie “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” is set in Iraq and the US; says war is like global warming and is pretty bad and a “messy situation” where “your heart aches” for the soldiers and the refugees, the Press Trust of India (PTI) reports.
The “Life of Pi” helmer said for his latest project, he researched from the perspective of the soldier as well as the people living in Iraq. He also interacted with those living in refugee camps.
“I feel bad for both of them. It’s a really messy situation, you choose between dictatorship and chaos. Those young soldiers serving there are trained to fight but are confronted with situations where they do not know what to do,” he said at an event, held in the city.
