The Hurt Locker on youTube
The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug
The quote is from Chris Hedges, who knows what he says: he spent two decades as a reporter covering wars in Latin America, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
It is the quote that opens The Hurt Locker, but this movie also calls in my mind a formidable book about the wars in the Balkans and Chechnya, My War Gone By, I Miss It So.
IMHO The Hurt Locker should take the Oscar this year.
