The Left’s battle against “Zero Dark Thirty” continues, but this time the Oscar-winning director of the film is being called far worse than an apologist for “torture.”
A trio of senators previously critiqued the minds behind the movie, detailing the hunt for Osama bin Laden, for daring to suggested enhanced interrogation tactics helped nab the terrorist leader.
Now, progressive critic Naomi Wolf is comparing Bigelow to the Nazis’ premier propagandist.
In a time of darkness in America, you are being feted by Hollywood, and hailed by major media. But to me, the path your career has now taken reminds of no one so much as that other female film pioneer who became, eventually, an apologist for evil: Leni Riefenstahl. Riefenstahl’s 1935 Triumph of the Will, which glorified Nazi military power, was a massive hit in Germany. Riefenstahl was the first female film director to be hailed worldwide….Like Riefenstahl, you are a great artist. But now you will be remembered forever as torture’s handmaiden.
