the filmmakers of "zero dark thirty" have taken much criticism for the movie's thesis that the torture of detainees helped the c.i.a. find osama bin laden. even though this premise is false, the criticism is unfair. fictionalized scenes inaccurately showing torture as an effective means of obtaining information is a timeless hollywood tradition - in fat, four other oscar-nominated films used this popular plot device this year!
