It's a surprisingly slow day for news, so I thought I'd feature this interview from a recent episode of The Colbert Report. Colbert talks with director Kathryn Bigelow about her movie The Hurt Locker, which is currently in theaters now. As anyone, including The Film Feed guys, will tell you, The Hurt Locker is a must-see this summer, one of the most intense movies you'll watch, without a doubt. If you've seen it or are remotely interested in it, hopefully you read our interview with Kathryn and writer Mark Boal earlier this summer. Additionally, this is a fun, little interview that also highlights Hurt Locker in a great way - enjoy!
The Hurt Locker is directed by Kathryn Bigelow, of Blue Steel, Point Break, K-19: The Widowmaker, and Mission Zero previously. The original screenplay was written by Mark Boal, an actual war photographer that spent time in Iraq with a real EOD bomb squad and came back with many riveting stories that became the inspiration for the film. Summit Entertainment picked up the distribution rights to this during the Toronto Film Festival last year and they already debuted it in limited theaters starting on June 26th this summer.
