NY Times Praise for THE HURT LOCKER

June 26, 2009


AO. Scott is calling it “…the best nondocumentary American feature made yet about the war in Iraq“. THE HURT LOCKER, playing at the Angelika Dallas starting 07/10 and the Angelika Houston starting 7/24, comes from POINT BREAK director Kathryn Bigelow.

Winner of four awards at the 2008 Venice Film Festival, the film follows a new sergeant, James (Jeremy Renner â?? THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES), who takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict. He surprises his two subordinates, (played by Anthony Mackie â?? WE ARE MARSHALL and Brian Geraghty – JARHEAD), by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat.
