A.O. Scott Watch: The Hurt Locker

hurt_locker_teaser

From today’s New York Times:

“…movies about that war have not exactly galvanized audiences or risen to the level of art. The squad of well-meaning topical dramas that trudged across the screens in the fall of 2007 were at once hysterical and noncommittal, registering an anxious, high-minded ambivalence that was neither illuminating nor especially entertaining. And the public, perhaps sufficiently enervated and confused by reality, was not eager to see it recreated on screen.

So let me put it another way, at the risk of a certain cognitive dissonance. If ‘The Hurt Locker’ is not the best action movie of the summer, I’ll blow up my car.”

  1. YES! Gotta love him–what a recommendation.

    Looking forward to Katherine Bigelow’s next treatise on men and violence.
