Saw Zero Dark Thirty. I think it's a remarkable film

exceptionally well written, filmed, directed and acted. I haven't heard an audience so quiet in so many years that I can't actually remember a film to compare it to. Not Hollywood at all, despite it being a species of Hollywood, albeit of an independent brand. Tension not overdone, gore not overdone and therefore more realistic, but definitely shocking at times. Worth more than one viewing IMO.
In a fight between Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty, I'd give them both Best Picture for the year, but I haven't really seen enough movies this last year to offer a truly informed opinion, except to say that both of them were way beyond my expectations.
