Zero Dark Thirty: A Lesson in Uncompromising Filmmaking

Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "This weekend marks the wide release of Kathryn Bigelow‘s latest controversial war film Zero Dark Thirty. Now, a much wider audience can react to the unsettling piece of visceral filmmaking. Zero Dark Thirty is either going to evoke positive praise from those that are perhaps pro-war, because the film does feature sharp acts of warfare and military tactics and a lot of scenes can be described as patriotic if that’s how you choose to view the film, but then there’s going to be those that say it glorifies the torture and puts emphasis on America and how we as a country participate in the war on terror. But both of those stances are completely undermining everything that Bigelow has done and everything that she’s trying to say." (Culture, Zero Dark Thirty)
