The new Kathryn Bigelow movie Zero Dark Thirty has been shrouded in controversy from the day she revealed that it was about the capture of Osama bin Laden. Now, US senators have written a letter calling for the movie makers to make it clear that the film is factually inaccurate, as it depicts scenes that never actually happened.

The letter read, “Zero Dark Thirty is factually inaccurate, and we believe that you have an obligation to state that the role of torture in the hunt for Osama bin Laden is not based on the facts, but rather part of the film’s fictional narrative. We understand that the film is fiction, but it opens with the words ‘based on first-hand accounts of actual events’ and there has been significant media coverage of the CIA’s cooperation with the screenwriters.”
 
It continued, “As you know, the film graphically depicts CIA officers repeatedly torturing detainees and then credits these detainees with providing critical lead information on the courier that led to Osama bin Laden. Regardless of what message the filmmakers intended to convey, the movie clearly implies that the CIA’s coercive interrogation techniques were effective in eliciting important information related to a courier for Osama bin Laden. We have reviewed CIA records and know that this is incorrect.”

Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal have responded to the letter by issuing a statement which says, “This was a 10-year intelligence operation brought to the screen in a two-and-a-half-hour film. We depicted a variety of controversial practices and intelligence methods that were used in the name of finding bin Laden.”
 
Zero Dark Thirty stars Jessica Chastain and is set to be released on January 11, 2013 in the US and on January 25, 2013 in the UK.
