Two Year-End Pulse Pounders: A Terrorist Search and an Astonishing Rescue

@ The Movies

Zero Dark Thirty

Four years ago, director Kathryn Bigelow achieved critical mass with “The Hurt Locker,” an unblinking and compelling look at the world of one dedicated US soldier in the Iraqi war, a film which—with modest box office—won the Oscar for Best Picture of the year.

Bartending requires skills not prioritized in school, which is why Derek didn’t even think about it until college.
