Zero Dark Thirty
Despite hating the twisting of the facts and the incessant propagandising, Kathryn Bigelow has produced a fine piece of work here, with accomplished performances throughout (Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, Édgar Ramirez, Kyle Chandler, Joel Edgerton, Fares Fares, Scott Adkins…).
Apparently fucks with the facts, but still a decent watch which is several rungs above being just a shameless exploitation disaster movie. Mark Wahlberg does his best blue collar everyman thing here, as an electrician caught up in a major fire incident on a massive offshore oil rig. Directed by Peter Berg, with nice supporting performances from John Malkovich as a thin-lipped company hack, and Kurt Russell as a grizzled site manager.
