Has The Oscar Race Begun?

hurtlockerhlposterusa2Critic Marshall Fine writes: ‘Perhaps it’s too early to be talking about Oscars but, at this point, Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” absolutely belongs in the mix. There’s more tension in this gripping tale than in the waistband of Oprah’s skinny jeans – which is pretty freakin’ tense.’ Other critics have also been effusive for this picture about a bomb squad and the Iraq War. I’m sure the film’s fine and well-acted: then why do I have little desire to see it?
