Much as I liked Jennifer Lawrence, I thought Jessica Chastain gave the performance of the year in a role she had to hold herself in check with a few exceptions in key scenes. I don't know if she, or anyone else, will get a part that good again. It's worth all the praise it got. It's made so well it seemed more like 90 minutes long. Enough said. Buy it. You're not going to see films like this everyday.

watched this last night and wow!~!!
the pq and aq on this film are stunning. just gorgeous to look at.
great moviie as well. i thought it was the best movie from 2012. clearly superior to argo. and yes
jessica chastain does an extraordinary job as the lead.
only reason this didn't get the recognition it deserves is because it was not politically correct. bigelow probably should have left the
torture out and everyone would have loved the feel good flick. but because she took the tough issues associated with this story,
which is what gives this film so much depth, the various film groups snubbed it.
i actually think the torture scenes are presented in a neutral sort of way. the filmmaker isn't trying to persuade you one way or another
on how to judge this conduct. it is left up to each viewer to come to their own opinion regarding the ethics used in obtaining information
about our enemy.
very intelligent and exceedingly well done.
