Kathryn Bigelow Estados Unidos, 2017

Zachary T.'s rating of the film Detroit

There can be no denying Bigelow's craftsmanship, or the sterling efforts of her terrific ensemble cast -- but the 'torture-porn' criticisms aren't completely unfounded. You'll leave furious, disheartened and angry; of course, that may be the point. But, the gratuitous, exploitative nature of "Detroit," as well as its defeatist attitude, keep it from being the seminal picture it could've (and should've) been.
