Kathryn Bigelow Estados Unidos, 2017

J. O.'s rating of the film Detroit

The kind of vague, oversimplified, unfocused storytelling that feels more like virtue-signalling than a genuine lament of the justice system, or a study of the failure to protect such and such community in such and such a time. Decent performances that flourish within the taut, well-crafted visuals that ooze tension. Despite its merits it felt scattered, sensational, with a rushed third act.
