Amazing portrayal of a incredible story-Kathryn Bigelow Rocks!
Thank you Kathryn Bigelow for telling this story, giving an honest portrayal of the difficulties our intelligence people must work through on several fronts: with the enemy (terrorists) our supposed "Allies" (Pakistan) and the bureaucracy of our own agencies and govenment.
Initially I wasn't going to see this film, having heard that Bigelow's team was given access and inside info that if broadcast, could endanger our troops, especially if the access was intended to promote Obama and his lackeys. But when she got blackballed by the Hollywood elite for telling the real story, (including showing the torture that is necessary to get usable intel) and then letting the viewer decide, I went.
The added fact that this woman director can make the most gritty, believable, non-gratuitous war movies (including the Hurt Locker) only raises her stock in my book. SEE IT.
