Zero Dark Thirty
"Zero Dark Thirty" chronicles the CIA's fascinating, decade-long hunt for Osama Bin Laden and how far a country/ a young woman is willing to go in order to kill one man.
Sculpted by Kathryn Bigelow's muscular direction, Mark Boal's sharp screenwriting and an all-around excellent tech team including some truly tremendous editing work, there's not an ounce of fat on this 157-min beast of a film (well, maybe the raid scene in the last half hour could have been a little tighter but still); Jessica Chastain as Maya is strength, resolve, intelligence, rage all in one, her portrayal of someone spiraling down into desperation and animalistic obsession is blunt, sobering, utterly compelling.
