  • Zero Dark Thirty

    2012. USA. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow. An expertly crafted examination of the decade-long hunt for Osama Bin Laden, Kathryn Bigelow's follow-up to her Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker has already become the most talked-about film of 2012 (and it won't even enter wide release in the U.S. until mid-January). Jessica Chastain stuns as Maya, a driven, rigorously focused CIA agent whose mission in life is to track down the mass-murdering head of Al Qaeda. Mark Boal's thoroughly researched script traces bits of information gleaned from detainees and the dedicated detective work that ultimately led Navy SEAL Team Six's fateful Pakistan raid. With unflinching portrayals of torture and heart-wrenching betrayals and a virtuoustic final act, Zero Dark Thirty will long be discussed and admired. 157 min.
