Kathryn Bigelow and Zero Dark Thirty screenwriter Mark Boal are doing the media tour thing to defend their depiction of torture in the Oscar-nominated military drama — and how those tactics might have led to the killing of Osama bin Laden. The Senate, for one, wants to know more about where that information came from. Bigelow was supposed to be on The Colbert Report two weeks ago but backed out — she apologized to Stephen Colbert during yesterday’s show, saying “I was spooked by the Senate investigation.” Her carefully worded answers suggest “spooked” isn’t too far off. Funny that it took Comedy Central to bring out Bigelow’s most candid interview yet — and kudos for Colbert for asking strong questions about the filmmakers’ primary sources, whether Bigelow believed they were spun by the government, and what she thought about potentially being called before Congress.
