The new movie "Zero Dark Thirty," about the hunt and capture of Osama bin Laden, opened in some Bay Area theaters over the weekend. While the film has been widely praised by critics, it has come under fire for its depiction of torture and the role of "enhanced interrogation" in bin Laden's capture.
