DETROIT - A chilling and prescient ordeal of blood and fire

There are some parallels between Jordan Peele’s dark comedy Get Out and Katherine Bigelow’s Detroit. At the centre of the latter, a film set in the heat of the 1967 Detroit riots and uprising, is the incendiary matter of race relations, made even more so by the portrayals of vicious police brutality and at its strongest points, Bigelow harnesses absolute terror out of the mundane, much like in Get Out, only through an obviously more serious and frightening lens than in Peele’s enjoyable film. 1,148 more words

Film Reviews

DETROIT***** Outstanding

“DETROIT” THE NEW movie from Katherine Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”, “Zero Dark”) is such a viscerally powerful, emotionally draining movie that you leave the cinema feeling as though you’ve been kicked in the guts. 953 more words


Detroit (2017): Politics in the Eyes of the Beholder?

Written by: Mark Boal, Directed by: Katherine Bigelow


I walked out of Detroit prepared to give it a glowing review. Cinematically the work is inventive without being alienating. 1,584 more words


Katherine Bigelow’s “DETROIT” is terror porn; devoid of resistance and hope

As one fellow movie goer said I feel violated, and that about sums it up. If you relish seeing Black people getting their behinds kicked and terrorized and murdered, if Black pain, Black helplessness and Black victimization (minus resistance)  turns you on, then this is the film for you. 868 more words
