Kathryn Bigelow

The Iraq War drama The Hurt Locker won best picture on Sunday at the Oscars, and Kathryn Bigelow won best director. Kathryn Bigelow on filming her character studies: “Hurt Locker’s about humanity. It’s about friendship and comeraderie in an absolutely hellish environment, and I think that’s universal, that’s not necessarily gender specific. I’m making a movie about a conflict that is still ongoing. And I think it’s important to be as accurate and authentic and factual and reality-based as you possibly can.” She sounds very nice and clear-headed. Have any of you seen this film?

One thought on “Kathryn Bigelow”

  1. I haven’t seen the film myself, but I am quite glad that Avatar didn’t sweep the board at the Oscars as some predicted. Development in technology used for film-making is great, and I am all for pushing the envelope in that respect, but the story must be paramount (not necessarily Paramount, though =) )
