I'm finally getting around to watching The Hurt Locker. It's great, but I'm having trouble imagining what the screenplay must have looked like. I mean, this thing is all about the acting and the editing. And the directing, of course. It reminds me of one of my favorite John Carpenter quotes: "If the writer thinks he's an auteur, then let him thread up his screenplay in a projector and we'll take a look at it."
I used to complain that Hurt director Kathryn Bigelow was overrated. I mean, Point Break? Whatevs.
I hope that Ms. Bigelow will accept my apology for ever doubting her. She's the real deal.
