Kathryn Bigelow appeared on "The Colbert Report" last night to talk about the fallout from "Zero Dark Thirty" and, once again, the film's portrayal of torture. The filmmaker's been more vocal lately out after attempting to let the movie speak for itself, and starts the extended version of the on air interview below by apologizing to host Stephen Colbert for not coming on the show weeks ago when they apparently first tried to book her -- "I was spooked by the Senate investigation," she admits.

Colbert Report: Bigelow

Kathryn Bigelow appeared on "The Colbert Report" last night to talk about the fallout from "Zero Dark Thirty" and, once again, the film's portrayal of torture. The filmmaker's been more vocal lately out after attempting to let the movie speak for itself, and starts the extended version of the on air interview below by apologizing to host Stephen Colbert for not coming on the show weeks ago when they apparently first tried to book her -- "I was spooked by the Senate investigation," she admits.

Colbert seems to be a big fan of the film, but does try to pin a careful Bigelow down about whether she feels the information she received from CIA sources was accurate, or if it was intended to make the depiction of "enhanced interrogation" look worthwhile -- "Do you think you were duped?" he asks. Bigelow's response allows her to admit that she, like all of us, doesn't know, while standing by the information she was given.  Check out the full interview below:
