With Hurt Locker looking like an almost-sure thing for Best Picture, we thought we’d dig up one of the director’s attempts at the fine genre known as “advertorial.” Specifically, a nine-minute spot called Mission Zero that Kathryn Bigelow made a couple years back for the tire company Pirelli (remember them?) which features a bright yellow Ferrari, an omnipresent squad of assassins and a typically hardass Uma Thurman. It was passed over by the Academy, presumably because they wanted more on the political implications of Ferrari chases.
