As you've no doubt noticed from last week's Oscar announcements, The Hurt Locker's blown up in a big way since its initial release last summer, reaping honors for best director, cinematography, and
editing, all on top of best film of the '09. And, according to its
Academy Award-nominated star, Jeremy Renner, Kathryn Bigelow's
accolade-stealing indie pic owes a great deal of its buzz to the praise
of reviewers nationwide, including our own Boston Society of Film Critics.
