We watched Hurt Locker last night, at the same time it was gathering Oscars out in Hollywood. All in all, a pretty good picture--lots of razzle dazzle, flash-bang, and shock und awe stuff. Good acting, minimal dialogue.
I came away from the film thinking three thoughts:
1. What the hell are we doing in Iraq?
2. Hell does actually exist; it's called the Middle East.
3. The film is a great argument for abortion. Suppose their collective motherhood had decided to abort George W. Bush, Dicky Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Don Rumsfeld , Richard Perle and Bill Krystol. The world might be a better place.
