  • Judged solely as a film, a partially fictionalized account of the decade-long search for bin Laden, it's superbly crafted and relentlessly dramatic. More than that, though, Zero Dark Thirty is a shock to the system, one that's bound to incite discussion of profoundly troubling issues. show more

  • The film's power steadily and relentlessly builds over its long course, to a point that is terrifically imposing and unshakable. show more

  • A monumental achievement that documents a coordinated and complicated response to a monumental tragedy. show more
