Zero Dark Thirty

DVDizzy
10 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal prove that The Hurt Locker was no fluke in the superior Zero Dark Thirty , as gripping and masterful as any of last year's films. Recalling All the President's Men in its timeliness and thoroughness, this docudrama deserves to be celebrated in similar ways for decades to come.

Best Picture: ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

Thelma Adams
21 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I wrote the following text for the Program of the New York Film Critics Circle Awards , 2013: I fell in love with ZD30 at first sight in a way that was as unequivocal and driven as Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow . In her ninth theatrical feature, Bigelow reunites with “The Hurt Locker” screenwriter Mark Boal to create an uncompromising edge-of-your seat drama about the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden.

Film Review: Zero Dark Thirty

FilmJournal
14 December 2012
  • Excerpt: The single most honest moment about the war on terror that’s yet been seen on movie screens comes early in Kathryn Bigelow’s thoughtful, taut war film Zero Dark Thirty. Some American intelligence analysts are meeting in a conference room, circa 2008. A TV is on, playing an interview with Barack...

Zero Dark Thirty

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: Gripping throughout, with an impressive central performance, this is like a Dogme 95 redo of a Chuck Norris film — by heroic effort, the good guys find and kill a bad guy. How you feel about that is something Bigelow leaves you to decide.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
31 January 2013
  • Excerpt: "Zero Dark Thirty" is a masterful thriller that isn't driven by an ideology or political agenda. The film serves as a dramatised yet convincing chronicle about the hunt for the world's most wanted man, made all the more authentic by an exceptionally superb cast, leads and cameos alike.

  • Summary: Zero Dark Thirty heeft in Amerika al veel stof doen opwaaien. Zowel CIA, senatoren als de anti-martelbond hebben geklaagd over de gesuggereerde effectiviteit van folteringen.

  • Excerpt: På det mest konkreta planet handlar Zero Dark Thirty om USA:s jakt på al-Qaida-ledaren Usama bin Ladin. En jakt som pågått under radarn och som främst förts av vår tids infanteri – härdade statstjänstemän med vacklande känsloliv som drivs lika mycket av byråkratens själ som patriotens händer. På ett större plan är detta dock en sammanfattning av den samling dåd, konflikter, incidenter och krig som populärt kommit att kallas Kriget mot terrorn.

Zero dark thirty

tros kompas
26 March 2013
  • Excerpt: ‘Zero dark thirty’ is een atypische thriller over de jacht op Osama Bin Laden, de gehate leider van Al Qaida. In andere handen had zo’n onderwerp ongetwijfeld geleid tot een film vol snelle achtervolgingen, slimme trucs, spectaculaire explosies, wapperende Amerikaanse vlaggen en een groep stoere, dappere helden. Regisseur Kathryn Bigelow (die eerder ‘The hurt locker’ maakte over de verslaving aan oorlogs-gevaar) heeft echter minder aandacht voor bravoure en heldendom.

  • Excerpt: Kathryn Bigelow maakt grote kans op haar tweede Oscar voor Beste Regisseur met deze zinderende jacht op Osama bin Laden. Maar de film stoeit ook met vragen over martelen die maar eens beantwoord moeten worden.

Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

cinemagazine
23 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Ruim voor iemand ook maar een glimp van de film had opgevangen, was ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ (2012) van Kathryn Bigelow al hét gesprek van de dag. Half politiek Amerika viel over de omstreden martelscènes in de film over de jacht op Osama Bin Laden, die de mythe zouden versterken dat folteringen een doeltreffend en dus geoorloofd middel zijn om verdachten mee onder druk te zetten.
