Not in wide release yet, I realize, but I saw this last night and wanted to start a thread. The official site says: "For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history's greatest manhunt for the world's most dangerous man." This is pretty terrific film-making, no matter what your political persuasion is, I think. It's a mystery, a thriller, and finally a stunningly photographed military raid. Even though we know how this movie ends, we hang on to the edge of our seats. Yes, it takes some definite Hollywood license and makes Maya the heroine of the story as the single obsessed CIA analyst (when the reality was, it was a team of analysts over a long period of time). It probably gets some of the torture stuff "wrong" as to who did what, when & where. But it's a compelling story, nonetheless. And it's more even-handed than I expected in its narrative.
