In this new clip from Zero Dark Thirty, an extremely determined red-haired CIA analyst gets into an argument with a superior over Abu Nazir….oh wait, sorry, Osama Bin Laden. I was thinking of Homeland. And can you blame me? Everything about the clip looks and sounds exactly like an episode of Homeland. (Also, the word “homeland” is used three times). The only thing that’s different is that Jessica Chastain’s eyes don’t get quite as wide and bulgy as Claire Danes’ when she yells at people.
And if turns out that the movie is as Homeland-ish as the clip suggests, count me in. A two and a half hour long Homeland episode directed by Kaythyrn Bigelow and starring Jessica Chastain is something that I’d camp in front of the theatre Twilight-style to see.
