Is anyone seriously coming away from this thinking that:

a) Torture worked/led to the discovery of Bin Laden
b) This is all some big jerkoff session for the people involved with the operation

It's The Hurt Locker: Intelligence Edition. I think Bigelow's fixation on people in defense has more to do with how people are able to live under constant stress/pressure than some sort of fascist or propagandist drive. I didn't finish this movie thinking that the use of torture was condemned or supported in it, and it annoys the shit out of me that people act as if the movie needs to pick a side.

I did like the movie a lot. Bigelow is an example of a workmanlike director who is really fucking good at their craft (unlike some other directors).
