Skip to comments.Kathryn Bigelow Sells Her Artistic Soul to The State
Posted on 05/24/2012 11:00:50 AM PDT by servo1969
Starting with her stunning 1987 debut, "Near Dark," for two decades Bigelow was a true iconoclast, a woman director making some of the most masculine action films of her time and making them in her own way.
Finally, it all comes together for her with "The Hurt Locker," and she joins the club.
Maybe she hasn't seen "The Lives of Others." Maybe someone needs to sit her down and explain that as of right now she's the pre-arc playwright shilling for the State in exchange for access, riches, adoration, and acclaim. The only thing worse than those who use others are those willing to be used.
This bin Laden film needs to scrapped. It is now tainted in every imaginable way -- artistically and as it relates to our national security. And if it's not scrapped, we can only hope that the blowback forever taints all those involved.

“for two decades Bigelow was a true iconoclast, a woman director making some of the most masculine action films of her time and making them in her own way”
How does that make one an “iconoclast”? I don’t think this writer knows what that word means.
That’s a man!
By the way, the only reason “The Hurt Locker” won best picture is because it was the first Iraq war movie not to suck. It wasn’t all that great. “Point Break” is easily far superior.
I wondered the same thing. If anything, she’s “breaking the mold” rather than attacking traditions.
She’ll do a remake with our Afrofascist fuhrer on the cover..
Anyone who hasn't seen that film MUST get it and watch it. One of the best I've ever seen.
