Zero Dark Thirty (2013)
“Zero Dark Thirty” is powerful and captivating, with overly impressive and year’s best worthy performances from Jessica Chastain and Jason Clarke who hand-carry this film with their determination and prowess in front of the camera. From scene one until the suspenseful night raid of which the film gets its name, Kathryn Bigelow builds a distinct surrounding of political and actual warfare, with phenomenal moments built around actual occurrences following the events of 9/11. Whether this film is fully, loosely, or not all based on the actual events of killing Osama bin Laden doesn’t matter, as the progression through the aggravation and constant loss amongst this impossible manhunt is more than enough to mark this film as monumental.
Best time at a movie in a long time. Kept me interested & had everything from comedy to drama to horror. Great mix, great speed, great dialogue. If Woody Harrelson could get an award for this film, he would. Can’t wait to watch this film again. and again.
