At the end of "Oscar" 2010 film "the hurt locker" won the categories:

- best film
- best Director
- best screenplay
- best editing
- best sound
- the best sound editing.

I would be added these nominations one more "the Best American propaganda" after which, I think everyone would be a clear and clear. Another way to involve the public not only his country, but and the world to the problem is urgent. To show what humane Americans as they fight for justice not sparing the stomach, and they mourn poor poor innocent Iraqi people.

The scene where the soldier cultural requests to withdraw civilians from cordoned off the area, personally calling me a sarcastic smile.
Already not saying 45 seconds to the explosion of the main character still has time to apologize, make excuses and say goodbye to  the"suicide", the feeling that they scoff at the world community, or us fools accept.

And such lapses glorifying the American soldier abound. Just a shame that now, the Oscars get political pictures, does not differ, except for "special" US role in world politics. Again the world beauty applause awards and here is the box office receipts speak for yourself. The audience don't bother to the cinema walk. Question: "Where is the American patriotism?"

The film is not bad, but to make  the"Oscar" need great skill, art, and the love of the audience. Here we see the carnage, destruction, and simply good policy.

Am I ever love the movies Katherine Bigelow, as well as the films of James Cameron or Tarantino ? Much in doubt it. To not talked to experts and awards, viewers love speaks louder than words. I think of these awards great mistake to leave the acknowledged masters for trait of winners. And would like to see the list of winners of "Oscar" 2010
looked like this:

-best film —  Avatar
-best Director — James Cameron
-best screenplay — Quentin Tarantino
-best editing —  Avatar
-best sound —  Avatar
-best sound editing —  Avatar

This is purely my personal opinion.

Alas, 6 out of 10.

The flow of news reports from Iraq, Afghanistan, Dagestan, Ingushetia and other hot spots begin to distinguish one attack from another only by the number of victims. 20, 30, 70, 500,... More 10 years ago never thought the people can become a walking bomb, now there is nothing will surprise you. But for most people living outside war zones or conflicts, all such a tragedy does not more than background.

While watching "the hurt locker" this background, this deadly drama rises before my eyes literally. The authors of the film managed to make a film that the viewer becomes another one direct participant of events, even one minesweeper, whose life is constantly under Manager.

This film neither the right nor the fault. All participants of the events involved in one big tragedy unfolding on the screen. Someone dies or becomes crippled, someone breaks down mentally, and for some, the war becomes a deadly drug. All in life embellishment.

Impression after looking long lets go, causing more and again relive what he saw. "The fault" this is not only the plot and the directing, the acting or camera work, and all together forming in mind a vivid image.

I would like to thank not only the filmmakers, but those who has organized his display in Russia. Let a difference of more than a year, even in a small number of theaters.

This film was worth the wait.

I have to say, the film "the hurt locker" I did not like. To be honest, I understood why. Military movie I love, is in it's something alive, like from another world. But here "the hurt locker" is a dead movie.

I still sure that academics overestimated this... the film, although I neither a second doubt the talent of Kathryn Bigelow.

When I watched this movie the first time, you to the ninth or tenth minute was asleep. After another was trying to watch it completely, but they were crowned with success. And that's after three cups of coffee and constant fidgeting, I finished off this "masterpiece" and realized tried in vain. Hoping that only the beginning is boring, I fought sleep, but... alas. The film is not impressed.

In any way, nor where man, the heart pounding, pulse is not increased. Frames dry, monotonous dialogue, and occasionally intermittent shouting of the actors and nervous breakdown of the main character.

I don't know what this film kicked so many Oscars, but they clearly overdone. Maybe it depends on where we live. We are Russian, most patient souls on the planet Earth. And beyond side of the ocean the people suffer, suffer, waiting for loved ones home. Here is not resist this pseudo.

But who are we but mere mortals to judge the sacred American cinema.

So that I'm sorry the great Catherine, but only 2 10.

1 for the effort + 1 for not indifferent attitude to the problem.
