‘Zero Dark Thirty’ raises tough questions

‘Twas a few weeks before Christmas, 10 days since Kathryn Bigelow’s last edit on the hunt for Bin Laden movie Zero Dark Thirty. And she and collaborator Mark Boal were touchy.

Bigelow seemed reluctant to talk about being the first wo guess man anything. It may be of interest that the first woman to win a directing Oscar didn’t win it for a “women’s movie,” but for an Iraq War tale (The Hurt Locker), followed by a war on terror movie testosterone drenched subjects both. Bigelow isn’t going there. “I look forward to when gender isn’t an issue,” she says.

As for Boal, his script, with shadowy input from CIA operatives, had already become an election issue. There were rumours of a CIA internal investigation of how he obtained his material. Had Boal been given improper access by a Hollywood friendly Obama administration that had already used Bin Laden’s death to political advantage?

(He had yet to experience the second wave of criticism from the other side of the political spectrum that Zero Dark Thirty “okays” torture by showing key information being extracted via waterboarding.)

“Some of that’s been exaggerated,” he says of the CIA investigation. “It was an election year, and in American politics people say things during that process.”

The story he and Bigelow ended up telling didn’t even involve Obama, and indeed, only included the storied raid by SEAL Team Six in its last 20 minutes.

Instead, it’s a Capt. Ahab type story, about a single female CIA agent named Maya (Jessica Chastain) who spends a guess decade chasing every lead, defying orders, and when she tracks down what turns out to be Bin Laden’s safe house doing everything but hunger striking to get her superiors to believe her.

Who is Maya? A composite, we’re told, partly inspired by an actual operative who advised the SEAL Team Six mission, and a nod to the women involved in cornering Al Qaeda leader and 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden.

“I was surprised women were at the heart of this hunt. And then I was sur guess prised that I was surprised,” Bigelow says.

“We definitely felt it was a good avenue to pursue, when w guess e found there was a woman who’d been forward deployed with the team (Seal Team Six) and that she’d been in Jalalabad (Pakistan) as liaison for the CIA.”

So, the story Bigelow and Boal tell notwithstanding, was there a single person, without whose years long tireless efforts, the Bin Laden takedown wouldn’t have happened? “That would be a little bit of an overstatement.” Boal says. “There were a lot of people. This is not a documentary.

“Now there are books coming out (about Bin Laden), at the same time as the movie. But when we started working on it there was very little known.

“I think the choice we made is defenceable. But we’re not asking to be held to the standards of journalism.”

The movie also seems to say that the CIA was still a Cold War based organization, relying on useless methods like “bounties” ($25 million for Bin Laden, which might as well have been $25).
