Zero Dark Thirty(2013)

All I can say is wow...I have never felt anxiety like that watching a movie. Not only does this do an amazing psycho analysis of Maya but the story is told with an extreme attention to detail. Very efficiently edited and shot. The sound design was very realistic and was nicely mixed. I could not believe this movie was 2 hr 45 m. It felt like 20. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack when seal team 6 stormed bin ladens compound at the end. That entire sequence was incredibly well choreographed. I haven't ever seen a military battle that looked as realistic as that. Characters don't move like they are in a movie in a long drawn out firefight. Battles literally take a split second and its over. As for Kathryn Bigelow..superb direction. This movie had me from the first second to the last and that totally pays credit to the director. This makes me more outraged she was snubbed for best director. The Academy should be ashamed of themselves. Easily my favorite movie of the year. This is my new vote for Best Picture, Best Lead Actress and both sound Oscars. Incredible 10/10
