Here is the synopsis for “The Hurt Locker”:

“The Hurt Locker,” which is the winner of the 2008 Venice Film Festival SIGNIS Grand Prize, is a riveting and suspenseful portrait of the courage under fire of the military’s unrecognized heroes: the technicians of a bomb squad who volunteer to challenge the odds and save lives in one of the world’s most dangerous places.

Three members of the U.S. Army’s elite Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) squad battle insurgents and each other as they search for and disarm a wave of roadside bombs on the streets of Baghdad to make the city a safer place for Iraqis and Americans alike.

Their mission is clear – protect and save – but it’s anything but easy as the margin of error when defusing a war-zone bomb is zero. This thrilling and heart-pounding look at the effects of combat and danger on the human psyche is based on the firsthand observations of journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal who was embedded in a special bomb unit in Iraq. These men spoke of explosions as putting you in “the hurt locker”.

Acclaimed director Kathryn Bigelow brings together groundbreaking realistic action and intimate human drama in a landmark film starring Jeremy Renner (“Dahmer,” “The Assassination of Jesse James”), Anthony Mackie (“Half Nelson,” “We Are Marshall”) and Brian Geraghty (“We Are Marshall,” “Jarhead”) with cameo appearances by Ralph Fiennes (“The Reader”), David Morse (“John Adams”), Evangeline Lilly (“Lost”) and Guy Pearce (“Memento”).

“The Hurt Locker” is produced by Kathryn Bigelow, Mark Boal, Greg Shapiro and Nicolas Chartier. The screenplay is written by Mark Boal (the story of “In the Valley of Elah”). Barry Ackroyd (“United 93,” “The Wind That Shakes the Barley”) is the director of photography. The production designer is Karl Juliusson (“K19: The Widowmaker,” “Breaking the Waves”).

Editors are Bob Murawski (“Spider-Man 2,” “Spider-Man 3”) and Chris Innis. The costume designer is George Little (“Jarhead,” “Crimson Tide”). Music is by Academy Award nominee Marco Beltrami (“Knowing”) and Buck Sanders (“3:10 to Yuma”). Sound design is by Academy Award nominee Paul N.J. Ottosson (“Spider-Man 2,” “Spider-Man 3”).

Danger?

How about sticking a steak knife into the wall socket voluntarily and living to tell the tale? Hey, I was 3 yrs old, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I scared the bejeesus out of my mom that day, but it wouldn’t be the last. :)

  • 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves

    CHICAGO – If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between a director and a producer, let “47 Ronin” explain how the hierarchy of creativity hinders the evolution of even the most straightforward-sounding pitches. “47 Ronin” is the type of samurai movie set in Japan that features native actors speaking only English, while Keanu Reeves stars as an outsider clearly plunked into the picture for stateside star power.

  • A Field in England (teaser)

    CHICAGO – I can’t recommend this more. “A Field in England” is a flashback and a flash forward all at once. It’s impossible to watch without thinking of great counter culture cinema. In fact when I saw it at Fantastic Fest 2013 it played as part of a double bill with Ken Russell’s “The Devils” (1971). They made perfect cinematic companion pieces. Russell’s film concerned a wayward priest desperate to protect his 17th century city from corruption in the Church only to fall victim to group hysteria when he is, ironically, accused of witchcraft by a jealous nun.
