On the moral corruption of Zero Dark Thirty 

It is bad enough that Zero Dark Thirty is a laughably written, poorly plotted, badly directed and exfoliatingly dull telling of the most dramatic manhunt in our lifetimes. It is also completely, uttery, relentlessly immoral.

Kathryn Bigelow's attempt in the LA Times at defending herself on her handling of the torture issue is inept. 

Steve Coll eviscerates her in the New York Review of Books. 

I join in the pile-on in tomorrow's edition of the Ottawa Citizen, or you can read it online. 

By all means see the movie.
