All 10 Kathryn Bigelow Movies Ranked From Worst to Best
"California-born Kathryn Bigelow began as an artist, before transitioning in to making short films. In the '80s, she directed two cult neo-noir pictures, before establishing herself as cinema's finest author of action movies. More recently, she's crafted a series of epic, timely, meaningful films that address issues stretching from racism to terrorism. In 2008, she became the first woman to receive the Academy Award for Best Director, for The Hurt Locker. Since her first short, Bigelow's work has maintained a fascination with violence. On this, she comments: "[Movie violence], if it allows you to get out certain tendencies and certain elements of aggression in a vicarious, voyeuristic manner, [can] be therapeutic."
