Critic Reviews for Detroit
An American horror story rooted so deeply and shamefully in home soil that it is still painful to watch half a century after the true events it's based on took place.
It hurts, because it needs to. This is not a film about civic pride or the city's comeback. We have to own this, and Bigelow highlights this ugly moment on its 50th anniversary. Yes, the city has moved on, but this incident still stings.
Intense and physically powerful in the way it conveys its atrocious events, the film nonetheless remains short on complexity, as if it were enough simply to provoke and outrage the audience. It's a grim tale with no catharsis.
