He tasks me! He tasks me, and I shall have him! – Khan Noonien Singh
The quote above is from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and it is all about Khan’s obsession with hunting down and killing Captain James T. Kirk. Zero Dark Thirty is a much better tale of obsession, and is hands-down one of 2012’s finest. While one hopes this is just the latest elevation of the talent of director Kathryn Bigelow, if it turns out to be her magnum opus it would still place her head and shoulders above almost everyone else.
