- --- Detroit --- . Katheryn Bigelow’s Detroit places the viewer in the shoes of the victims and the perpetrators of the war torn neighbourhood of Detroit and forces you feel every ounce they experience. . Taking place during the 1967 raids and riots in the streets and neighbourhoods of Detroit, we are taken into the perspective of multiple characters as their lives converge during the night at a Hotel. This entire film is based around these riots and the consequential corruption that was so prevalent during that time period, as well as the unrestricted power that the Detroit police department let loose. From the extreme racism to the blatant disregard for human life, this film presents us with a horrible scenario as it unfolds in all its gory details. The film takes place mostly over a day and night - starting with an early morning riot and finishing with a raid of a hotel. A unique part of this film was its decision to jump between character perspectives - e.g. a police perspective, then a civilian perspective (or victim to perpetrator) for different periods of time as the film builds to one single event that brings all the characters together at the hotel. While this film is based on a true story, if you aren't aware of its background then we wouldn't recommend reading up on it until after you've seen the film. . While we appreciate the bulk of the film, sadly one of the films more natural flaws is the fact that majority of the story is based around events that were never entirely proven or disproven in the court of law; it therefore restricts the filmmaking to an extent - this left us with some plot holes throughout the film, understandable however, as it would be disingenuous for Bigelow to fictionalize events and situations that were not entirely proven to happen. Though she isn't innocent in stretching certain truths, she openly states in a small paragraph before the credits roll that "many of the events portrayed throughout the film were exaggerated, however based off testimonies given by the victims and the evidence accumulated". .
