Initial impression of Zero Dark Thirty
Got a chance to see Zero Dark Thirty this morning.
All I can say is "The New Iliad". Seriously. It's storytelling straight from The Iliad's days.
Anyone who says it is judgmental, for or against, torture either didn't see it, or watched it through an ideological lens - it tells a story. "This is *basically* what happened". It's going to be as transformative as Private Ryan and is one of those movies that examines the soul. But makes no judgment on what it finds there.
