French legend Bruel returns to New York for inspiration NEW YORK: Patrick Bruel has long been a face of French popular culture and one of his country's most successful musicians.

'Fury' drives a tank through image of war LOS ANGELES: Brad Pitt's new war movie "Fury" offers a no-holds-barred view of warfare which some may find hard to stomach -- but its director justifies the gore as straightforward realism.A stuntman was injured by a bayonet during the making of the film, which includes multiple close-up scenes of slaughter, and which has already been turned into a video game."War is violent.
