A couple of great pieces on the politicisation of The Hurt Locker have surfaced post-BAFTA success. Vadim Rizov has a thoughtful piece at IFC.Com, and there’s an interesting response by Chuck Tryon here. There’s been quite a lot written about the film’s lack of politics, though this has muddled the lack of an explicit statement from Mark Boal on this, when I asked about he and Bigelow’s orientation, he plainly responded that everything you need to know is on the page, and on the screen. Looked pretty clear to me.
