Watch: Stephen Colbert Asks Kathryn Bigelow 'Do you think you were duped?' on 'The Colbert Report'

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:

    This clip is just one example of how Colbert never fails to make me laugh! Heck, I'm just glad that I watched this while I was in my break room, because I'm sure my giggles would've attracted a lot of snarky looks from my DISH coworkers if I was still at my desk. LOL! Now I can't help but want to track down this episode on my DVR and see what other hilarious questions he asks Bigelow! Luckily, it's not too late for me to check out the whole episode, since I make sure to record every Colbert Report. It's definitely a big thing to ask of my DVR, given that these daily episodes stack up quickly, but my DISH Hopper is equipped for the task! Since it comes with a hefty 450 hours of HD recording space, I can house every Colbert I want along with the rest of my recordings.

    I know the show is funny, but even when asked a serious question, the young & flippant audience still laughs like a bunch of idiots. Kids, lay off the marijuana.
