Did ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ filmmakers get torture right? [Poll]
When it comes to “Zero Dark Thirty,” there’s been a lot written about the CIA and torture—whether it looked in real life the way it does on screen, whether it was effective, whether it was ethical. As we’ve been reporting this week, John McCain and other lawmakers don’t agree it went down that way. The film, they say, misrepresents how the CIA found Osama bin Laden. Filmmakers say they’ve created an accurate depiction.
Now that the movie has opened, we thought we’d ask you what you thought of the scenes. Did they ring true? And if they did, how did you feel about them? Vote below. We’ll tally up the results next week and see how many side with the lawmakers and how many with the filmmakers.
