AV club review: Zero Dark Thirty’s lone-wolf protagonist makes it more conventional than it seems
Choice quote from AVClub: "Granted, American movies are littered with larger-than-life protagonists like Maya. And they’re so rarely female that it’s tempting to give it a pass in this instance. Context matters, though. Nothing in Zero Dark Thirty is even remotely as full of shit as the climactic sequence of Argo, which invents an airport-runway chase scene that never happened in real life. Argo, however, in spite of its “based on a true story” preface, more or less admits, through its Robert McKee-approved three-act structure and exaggerated performances and traditional suspense cues, that it’s entertaining nonsense. Zero Dark Thirty, on the other hand, wants us to believe. It yearns for credibility. And so it does its best to disguise the various ways in which it resembles a fairy tale. "

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
