Prepping for a lecture this Friday in Seattle following a showing of 2009’s Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker, and thought I’d try something new for the blog with an advance request for thoughts and comments from our avid readers.
What salient speaking points regarding the film should I include? Biblical concepts that came to mind? Particular scriptures that resonated as you watched?
Anything I dare not miss? The moment that defined the film for you?
The film deals pretty heavily with the notion of identity, but I’m curious what random thoughts or personal takeaways regular Cinemagogue folks already learned from their viewing.
Post your comments here if you’d like to inform and influence Friday’s post-show lecture, which will later be featured on audio here on the site.
