The New Classics - The Hurt Locker

Michael Cusumanohere to look back on one of the few classics about the Iraq War on the 10th anniversary of its release.

Scene: The Daisy Chain Bomb
When Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker hit theaters in the Summer of 2009 it was sold as an all-thrills,zero-politics experience.Here,the ads promised,was a film that wasn't going to go allValley of Elahon you with ponderous anti-war messages.The trio of soldiers that make up the film's central bomb disposal unit never discuss politics.They defuse the bombs,they don't get to hung up on why they are there in the first place.At no point do any of them sigh during a low moment and wonder,"Man,I don't even know what we're doing here..."

Likability

Hello,lovelies.Beauhere,hoping you all have had afantasticweekend.Whether that involved arguing over the season finale ofGirls,shielding your eyes from Halle Berry's hair inThe Call,or just readying yourselves for the onslaught of leprechauns and green colored ale that is St.Patrick's Day,I hope it's been an enjoyable one before heading back into the work week.

A lot has been said about Lena Dunham andGirls.I don't have a strong desire at this point to rehash the plot details and synopses of the past episode or the entire season for that matter (though I did that for the finale of season one).But,for myself,being an avid viewer ofGirlsand eagerly anticipating the next step in Ms.Dunham's career,the most discomforting element of all the criticism and controversy surrounding the show is that there is particular attention being paid to the characters"likability".

This concern isn't strictly limited to Dunham orGirls.The "unlikable!"charge has been levied at multiple television programs and films these past couple of years,as though whether or not youlikedthe primary set of characters,or the supporting ones,dictated whether or not the work as a whole was working or not.

HUH?

Screenplays of '12.Page 12."Zero Dark Thirty"

New daily!I'll be sharing page 12 of every screenplay I've received for 2012 Films.With commentary!

The following scene stars Jason Clarke as "bad news"Daniel who has surprisingly not been getting muchSupporting Actorbuzz despite shooting off unmissable 'next big thing' vibes and Reda Kateb* as his tortured prisoner Ammar.I've drawn a little storyboard for you since the studio hasn't released any stills from this particular scene.

INT.MAYA'S APARTMENT - ISLAMABAD

The loud WAILING of the early morning call to prayer from the loudspeakers of a nearby mosque wakes Maya on the couch.

CUT TO:

INT.BLACK SITE - AFTERNOON

Daniel and the guards enter Ammar's cel with Maya.Daniel switches on the floodlights,awakening Ammar.

DANIEL
Let's take it easy today,huh?

Daniel hands Ammar a bottle of orange juice and a bag of falalfel.

DANIEL (CONT'D)
Hungry?The food in here sucks so I
got you some of this.
