Seems like I’ve been pimping Kathryn Bigelow’s universally praised The Hurt Locker since time began. Way back in May I listed it as one of the summer’s Must Sees. Unfortunately, it’s been tough to catch a screening as it’s been rolling around in a very limited LA/New York release.
Three cheers for small miracles as The Hurt Locker opens a little wider this weekend and has Salt Lake City listed as one of the fortunate cities it’s shacking up with. With it’s widened release, we’re being treated to 8 minutes of tense action… 8 minutes that’s further convinced me this film will be well worth a drive and two hours of your time.
