Detroit it is clear that Kathryn Bigelow had the best intentions with ‘Detroit’, and so it is a shame that what was Detroit undoubtedly her primary objective has ended up standing out as the aspect in which it is most failed. The story takes place in the city of the title, during five days in July 1967. The night of the first of them, the police broke into a speakeasy and began to arrest the 85 people, all of them black, who gathered there. The action was responded to by a citizen protest that initially led to the looting of businesses and the burning of cars and buildings, and which ended up becoming one of the most violent and devastating episodes in the history of the United States. When it was all over, there had been more than 7,000 arrests and 43 people, mostly black, were dead.

Bigelow, in any case, focuses on a specific episode of those riots and on a specific point: the Algiers motel, an establishment run by African-Americans in which, on the third night, 12 people – 10 black, two white – were present. when a group of National Guard soldiers believed they saw a sniper firing at them from one of the building’s windows. Supported by Detroit police and state police, they opened fire on the windows and then forcibly entered the hotel. By the end of the night, three of its occupants were dead, and the rest had been victims of torture and humiliation.
