The film tells the inside story of the hunt for Osama bin Laden, and deals with a number of touchy subjects along the way. Chief among them is the no-holds-barred look at torture -- or "enhanced interrogation methods" -- which has offended some. In fact, some critics have even gone as far as to say the movie is pro-torture, which is a stance Bigelow seeks to clarify.
"They were difficult to shoot, those sequences," Bigelow explains of the torture scenes early in the film. "I wish it was not part of our history, but it was."
