La Noche más Oscura ***

Nos cuenta esa leyenda oculta por la CIA, sobre la caza y captura de Bin Laden. Lo más destacable esque aburre demasiado para tratar sobre eso. El final es sin duda lo mejor.

¿Cómo investigó la CIA los atentados de Al Qaeda? ¿Quién trazó el camino a seguir a la caza de terroristas? ¿Cómo se desarrolló la búsqueda de Osama Bin Laden? Para responder a estas preguntas, "Zero dark Thirty" es una muy buena opción.

La película empieza con el negro y el sonido de algunas de las victimas del 11-S,  que a conciencia de su inminente muerte trasladan sus vivencias al otro lado del teléfono, al otro lado de la pantalla. A partir de esta introducción, se desarrollan los momentos claves, a cuentagotas para aproximadamente 10 años de recorrido. Podemos decir que se trata de un documental en su forma, en una primera toma de contacto, y basada en que al fin y al cabo nos cuenta una historia real por la que se ha investigado para lograr la máxima veracidad posible. Pero van pasando los minutos, y Jessica Chastain va asumiendo más protagonismo, más responsabilidad, y con ello, pasa de documental a Thriller. Quizás Pseudo-documental.

Hoy es lunes, 14 de enero, y me despierto sabiendo que Jessica ha ganado el globo de oro a la  mejor actriz. No solemos comentar hechos paralelos a una crítica atemporal, pero haremos una excepción. Si la película termina decepcionando, al menos en su 60% de minutaje, es por la aparición de esta señora. Si Kathryn Bigelow no hubiera tratado permanentemente durante dos horas y media que esta actriz fuera nominada a los premios, quizás "La noche más oscura" sería una notable mejor película. Porque pese a que logra no posicionarse en la jungla que aventura la historia, algo verdaderamente palpable y de mucho mérito, regala demasiado tiempo a una cabecilla de la CIA que no convence, y además no luce, todo termina centrándose en ella. Solo hace falta ver el último minuto para comprender esta intención.

Más allá de este error, porque con el material que seguro deben poseer, teníamos un documental interesantísimo, y eso es pecado, lo que destacaría positivamente de este largometraje es su objetividad, como antes hemos adelantado, y la tensión de los últimos veinte minutos, que aparecen como elixir a un rato bastante aburrido, y son impecables.


Cuando tenemos documental, la película crece; Cuando Jessica Chastain aparece, la película cae. Eso es verdad. Eso es así. 6.5. Y ahora, fuera de cámaras, Jessica Chastain lucía espectacular ayer por la noche. Eso también es verdad.

    So this film is more of a visual eprxeience rather than a story? I wasn't sure I wanted to see it...there's been a lot of negative press about it. Although I'm not one to let the media sway my
    opinion...the trailer left me without a clue. I do trust your opinion more so than the I'll have to give the Tree of Life a chance. Baraka looks very interesting as a visual
    eprxeience...and I'm putting this in my movie queue. Thanks for the suggestion.

    The only thing I wish they’d given more of is background information on Jessica Chastain’s character. She’s a bit of a blank slate. All we know is that she joined the CIA right out of college and
    that she was recruited to do so. James Gandolfini, one of my favorite actors, plays the head of the investigation and there’s an interesting scene that felt unfinished to me or like a setup that
    never paid off. He asked her why she thought they recruited her and she simply answered, “I don’t think I’m allowed to answer that.” I think the movie would have been more interesting and more
    satisfying if she had been allowed to answer. If we had a glimpse into what made her so driven.I totally agree. I would have love to have known more about the main character. Other than that I felt
    the movie was decent. I went with my husband who I had made see Les Miz with me and had to watch me cry for 2/3rds of the movie.

    Ultimately Zero Dark Thirty is a drama with some boom, that I thought was worth a one time viewing. The “thriller” aspects of it are in place if you like spy games, however, the
    runtime of the movie hindered the formula a little bit. It felt like a light brushing over of history and I personally cannot just let it lie as a movie when based on such current historical events.
    It did not pack in the entertainment value of Bigelow’s previous action film The Hurt Locker for me. On a scale of YAY, NAY, or OKAY I’d vote it was just okay.

    Crystal at Cinnamon Hollow My heart ached for Carrie throughout this entire story. I cried with her, rejoiced with her and grew with her. There are MANY life lessons to be learned in this book.
    Carrie’s faith and endurance were tested and it was very easy to put yourself in her shoes and think about how you would handle the same situations. As a Christian, we are taught to forgive. I think
    Carrie’s forgiveness and ability to put others first is a testament to how we should all live. She definitely has more strength than I do and the lessons learned from reading Beauty for Ashes will
    remain with me and strengthen me. It is wonderful when a story can teach you so much! This was a great story and another I didn’t want to put down.

    1. Please tell us: What is your favorite movie soundtrack?I'm a big soundtrack fan and I have to say that Shrek Forever After knocked it out of the ball park for scores (though Avatar, Clash
    of Titans, and Inception was earcandy as well)...Okay, the Hunger Games had a great soundtrack too (even though none of the songs where even played).And The Artist had some shining jewels as well.2.

    Dan, in your second response, you outline your view of the host’s original post. I won’t repeat the section in which you do that; surely you know what you wrote. I will say that I
    don’t see the same thing in the “fourth point” that you seem to. To me, this seems like a question as to why those – who many see as the most ‘involved’ in the historic
    southern slavery issue – are not more concerned with the very same practice as it continues today.You and the host are perfectly capable or discussing the actual differences between the two of you
    and I’m not going to step in to re-hash or ‘add to’ that.My attention has, however, been caught by your reply of 10/25 – 12:53 pm in which you express a feeling of
    (apparently great) misfortune towards living here in the South. I’m in no position to analyze your feelings at all but I do think that you and I have some commonality that I’d
    like to address. It requires that I talk about myself which I don’t usually do but, here, it seems appropriate.Dan – I’m a northerner. No, not one living in the North but one who
    spent his life there with almost no exceptions for better than six decades. My family has lived in northern New England for generations, some of the branches along the St. Lawrence in southern
    Canada, also for generations – and that’s if you don’t include the faint line of Abenaki which may stretch back ten to twelve thousand years.I’m a former public school
    student in New Hampshire. I’m a (short time, post grad) alumnus of one of New England’s better ‘boys’ schools (now, of course, it’s co-ed).
    I’m a former worker, sales person, business owner (and it was a pretty successful semi-conductor component manufacturing entity doing business around the world, by gosh). I have been a
    member of the Wilson Institute, a (former) faithful subscriber to Foreign Affairs Quarterly, an avid reader of Newsweek and eager listener to PBR, it turns out that I’m even (for purposes
    of digging up alumni cash, mostly) an alumnus of the Art Institute of Boston. Dan, you can’t get any more NORTHERN. And I would have been delighted to remain there where my ancestors, my
    memories and my past were. But I cannot, and with that, I’d like to get to what you and I have so totally in common.Just as you find significant misfortune in being in the South, I came to
    find the same from living in the North.

    Apologies and “making amends” are just more of the same scape-goating that The South has been saddled with for generations.When the Northern merchants are ready to admit their
    guilt;when the descendants of the Africans who sold their fellow Africans into slavery (rather than simply butcher them as had been the practice during tribal wars) are ready to admit their
    guilt;when the federal government under whose flag the slave ships sailed is ready to admit its guilt;when the federal government that invaded a newly-born sovereign country is ready to admit its
    guilt;when the federal government that invented “scorched earth warfare” during Sherman’s March to the Sea is ready to admit its guilt;when the federal government that
    imposed a military dictatorship over The South following the war is ready to admit its guilt;when the federal government that imposed the cynically-named “Reconstruction” on the
    Southern states is ready to admit its guilt;when the political race pandering leadership are ready to admit their guilt;when each of those entities and more are willing to acknowledge their role in
    the institution of slavery and all that went with it;THEN, perhaps, we can speak of words like “apologies” and “making amends”.Until that time, the proper
    description for that would be obsequious groveling.I will not apologize for actions taken in another time by judging them using today’s standards. We can learn from their mistakes, but we
    have no right to offer apologies.I will not apologize for the fact that my own blood ancestors owned, bought, and sold slaves.I will not apologize for the actions of Southerners or of the Confederate
    States of America.For the past 150 years, The South has been the scape goat for slavery, as though it were a uniquely Southern idea that started in The South and came to an abrupt end following the
    “noble and heroic” efforts of The North. No, we are not claiming “victim status”, but neither will we pretend that we were treated fairly nor will we offer
    pseudo-apologies.Lest this sound like some sort of bitter ranting by yet another self-proclaimed “victim”, let’s keep it in perspective. This is specifically addressing
    the implied question of why we, as Southerners, won’t simply and meekly apologize and ask forgiveness (from someone or other) for the role of our ancestors in the institution of slavery in
    the years before 18
