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

  • 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

  • Hang on tight. The knockout punch of the movie season is being delivered by Zero Dark Thirty. show more
