Bigelows Early Work Benefited From Kathryn Bigelow’s Apprenticeships With Vito Acconi Richard Serra

In April 2010, Bigelow was named to the Time 100 list of most influential people of the year. Bigelow’s early work benefited from her apprenticeships with Vito Acconi, Richard Serra, and Lawrence Weiner. The film portrays “two men fighting each other as the semioticians Sylvère Lotringer and Marshall Blonsky deconstruct the images in voice-over.” Bigelow asked her actors to actually beat and bludgeon each other throughout the film’s all-night shoot. Bigelow’s subsequent trilogy of action films — Blue Steel, Point Break, and Strange Days — merged her philosophically minded manipulation of pace with the market demands of mainstream film-making. Blue Steel starred Jamie Lee Curtis as a rookie police officer who is stalked by a psychopathic killer, played by Ron Silver. Furthermore, many attributed the creative vision to James Cameron, diminishing Bigelow’s influence on the film. Bigelow next directed The Hurt Locker, which was first shown at the Venice Film Festival in September 2008 and released in the US in June 2009. She is the fourth woman in history to be nominated for the honor, and only the second American woman.
