Detroit Directed by Kathryn Bigelow
As a steadfast fan of Near Dark and Blue Steel, I have tenaciously resisted the mainstream shift in Bigelow’s career represented by The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty. . . . But what I took to be the political evasions of those films . . . become, by displacement, the central subject of the powerful Detroit, which is really about the State’s terror regime in a condition of urban, race war. Not a ‘return to form’, but a new and exciting form for Bigelow to have attained here.

One fascinating thing about the film is its patchwork texture… Another is its unorthodox structure, starting with a big picture network narrative, drawing the characters together for a taut, contained hostage situation with protagonists held at gunpoint by cops in the Algiers Motel, then breaking free and trundling along through a protracted, disjointed aftermath that leaves the viewer with no idea where the thing is going or when it will stop.

I found the ending of Detroit a little unsatisfying, at least on the basis of a single viewing… The trial is not brought to life, as the earlier scenes are, but sketched, and Bigelow loses the focus on character that is the strength of the body of the film, without expanding its scope to take in the incident’s political repercussions. But in a sense this disappointment is testament to how rich the characterisations are, and how powerful her film is.
