The actor plays a traumatized U.S. Marine searching for his estranged wife and son after cataclysm strikes in the thriller "Man Down," which is competing in the Venice Film Festival's Horizons section for new discoveries.Despite its blood-and-guts drama, LaBeouf and director Dito Montiel say "Man Down" isn't a war story, but the tale of a man trying to get his son back – almost a postapocalyptic "Kramer vs. Kramer". The 29-year-old "Transformers" star has made headlines with a series of bizarre escapades – including yelling from the audience during a Broadway show and wearing a paper bag on his head to a movie premiere – and has been treated for an alcohol problem.LaBeouf calls Gary Oldman, who plays a military counselor in Montiel's film, "the greatest actor alive".
