Seven Things I Found Jarring in Zero Dark Thirty
Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal at the 85th Academy Awards; screengrabs by X
by Russell Bennetts
1. John Barrowman.
2. All-too pertinent news clips are shown in the background of two discussion scenes.
3. Music I listen to for pleasure being used for pain. (I know this happened IRL, but nonetheless.)
4. A song that is ‘new’ in the UK is evidently old in USA/Iraq.
5. One person?
6. Maya’s Lana Del Rey impression in the final scene of the movie.
7. The torture.
