151

Hailed as one of the preeminent stylists of contemporary Hollywood filmmaking, Kathryn Bigelow was often too easily pigeonholed as a female director with a flair for traditionally masculine movies. After making an unusual entrance to cinema by way of the art world, Bigelow put her distinctive stamp on standard genre films like the Western-twinged vampire flick, Near Dark and the feminist-themed cop thriller, Blue Steel.

Today we will focus on three of her films; her financially successful surfer bank heist picture, Point Break which allowed, Bigelow to enjoy a newfound status as a mainstream director. Second we take a look at her so called most challenging film, the futuristic Strange Days and finally her most recent movie, The Hurt Locker, an Iraq war drama as seen through the eyes of members from the Army’s elite Explosive Disposal unit. Gaining rave reviews from critics world wide she has returned to the spotlight of Hollywood directors and today Sound On Sight spotlights a portion of her career.
