Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) has sparked a lot of controversy and debate around her latest film, Zero Dark Thirty. This week, she graces the cover of TIME Magazine in which she partakes in a pretty in depth and fascinating interview. When asked about the torture scenes depicted in her film, Bigelow replied: “On a personal level, those scenes were really hard to do. The audience wants to look away but knows they shouldn’t. It’s wrenching and difficult, and that is acknowledged in the cues we see in Jessica Chastain. She looks away; she covers her mouth. That is how many people in the audience react, or how they would react if they were in that room.” You can read the entire interview here.
