The only reason why I decided to write this review, it has become again disagreement with the others. Someone wrote that the presentation of facts in the film allegedly filed with a very subjective side (start reasoning about social issues instead of evaluation of the film, you seriously?). Do I have the opposite impression that the entire film purely from the part of the observer, not getting any whose side, showing and positive and negative traits of the characters that black that white. Yeah and the notorious racism is present here and those other.

Of course, many will say that based on actual events the film directed by Kathryn Bigelow on the riots in Detroit 1967 does not affect the Russian audience, and they will be right. But here for a wrapper for pseudodocumentaries on the riots on the streets, hides a powerful psychological Thriller, it is hardly inferior "the Experiment" (2001) and the like. And that outweighs some of the cons, the type of syndrome is the twitching of the camera and is too enthusiastic about dramatic a-line failed musician.

Of the actors it's impossible not to highlight will Poulter John Boyega. First, don't matter the appearance of the high school, was able to build a vivid image of the sadist, which is really scary. Moreover, the hero of the Poulter has a strong influence on colleagues who are his order is ready to be violent. Well and John Boyega I saw the first time, showed a very fine acting, as if with one glance of passing the internal state of the hero. This "game eyes", characteristic of the rare actors-African Americans, recently showed is that Daniel Kalua in film "Off" (by the way, they're both British, which for some reason took to play the Americans that leads to some reflections). Why not tell about Anthony Mackie, which my opinion, with your challenge is weak, but but emblazoned on the poster.

The film is not trying to impose their point of view, and thus skilfully tells the story, and therefore deserves as low, good grades. But if you see all propaganda-racism (read — don't like movies about blacks), feel free to pass by.

Once joint work is brilliant Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, the acclaimed in his time the paintings "the Hurt Locker" and"Zero Dark Trinity" is still expected in late 2016. But hour moved the release of the film took place only in the end of 2017. More limited release of the film only fueled the interest of the public, especially with the given the racial theme and lighting one of the most important events in US history of the 20th century.

Synopsis of the picture says that the plot is built around the famous riot in Detroit the middle of the 60 years. On the the story tells not so much about the riots in the city, but about the tragic events that occurred on one of the nights hotel "Algeria".

Detroit sample of the 60 known to Americans as one of the most famous venues in the unofficial policies of racial segregation. It is obvious that similar treatment of the African-American community, coupled with the constantly escalating violence by local police led to a full-scale revolt. The last straw for people was the RAID on a local nightclub in which dozens of its visitors had Packed in the police vehicles in eyes wound up crowd. And the day is not passed riots and mass protests spread through all over the city, in which also rather quickly appeared all any disorder related syndromes: violence and looting. Looted gun shops, attacks with roofs, riots led to the introduction of the national guard and state police in helping local law enforcement. Was also curfew. In the little theatre of hell, script work Boal masterfully brings the main characters of the story in one place and one time. Developments in hotel "Algeria" not can be known for sure in because of the lack of evidence and her testimony of surviving participants of the incident that the film-makers and announce the end of their work. Because of their interpretation except freestyle not called. Late in the evening the combined resources of the security forces broke into the hotel "Algeria" from which they were sure shots had been fired at the guards. Very soon the search process and the inquiry turned into a natural sadism.

Setting Bigelow mercilessly plunges the viewer into the epicenter of events and due to the strong suspense picture is more a crime Thriller than a social drama. The horror that was experienced by the participants in the events the viewer can almost feel the skin: all emotional, physical, pressure and apathy of hopelessness of the victim before death. And all thanks to the magnificent acting, acting brand new for them role. Of course, in many ways, the film can be accused of the lack of scope and the epic of the corresponding second importance of revolt in the"cradle of democracy". Due to the concentration of the plot on events hotel picture can be called multiple chamber — half of the duration given to only one location. You could also blame the creators of the operation of sore of the racial issue, but in addition to the limited release, the film is not released before all the major film festivals, despite that in fact, he was ready. Plus the picture is not continues to the new verse the old tolerant song to the tune of "all black — way white — racist". In the film, Bigelow is only the criminals, the crimes and their victims. There is censure of individual members of society, their omissions broken lives. To unfortunately, the lack of rental and focus on the festivals played a cruel joke with Bigelow and Boal, the picture of which does not recoup its budget, despite the positive marks from critics and viewers. Perhaps for these reasons, and due to the politically incorrect tone of the paintings — at the Oscars it can't wait. After all, this picture is not about the black gay media scandals or the Jewish question.

+: Setting, plot, suspense, acting.

-: The intimacy of what is happening, the lack of scale.

Another great women-directed by Kathryn Bigelow, which many know by legendary film "the hurt locker" and "K-19", "riding the wave" and many other wonderful paintings. Nor for who not secret that Katherine knows a lot about this drama and able show in all its glory. In a new film the Director touched on a rather painful subject for many Americans because on the background of the recent street disturbances this film, like an old wound that re-inflamed and haunted.

The plot is based on real events that occurred in the summer of 1967 in the city of Detroit, where hot interracial problem flared a fiery riot of street confrontations between aggressive citizens and armed police. But the storyline of the film lies inside the riots, as if dissolving in the total mass of bloody violence and unjustified violence. In the midst of tragic events, a group of young people for their stupidity and lack of understanding I decided to play a joke on police shot them the hotel of the toy gun. The police and military here responded to claps, considering it for some shots, and then around the preparation assault. A silly prank turned into a real chaos because what happened in the hotel can be called "the all-Consuming nightmare while awake."

Just want to note that I really liked the movie. The depth and scale of the drama really rolls over and has the pain points of emotional perception. Almost the entire film rests on the acting and their lodging, from which is truly breathtaking. Collected here are almost all known a little-known young black artists of Hollywood. Of course, not cost without the "white" actors perfectly coped with their task. I would like to mention the young will Poulter, who so I never really liked it, but here I just hate and not because of bad games, and Vice versa. Its elegant disgusting role of antagonist is above all praise. I was reminded of how terribly I hated the character Joffrey in the TV series "Game of Thrones". This second time in the last time when the young actor perfectly embodies the image of the villain.

As for performances, here I have no complaints there. Everything is done on the highest level, although many may not really like the camera style, over the live camera is quite responsive on what is happening in the frame. Outrageous emotions and the tense atmosphere completely immerse the viewer in an unforgettable journey painful Hell the harsh reality, as the events in the hotel is not are fiction authors. All events are based on the memories of people and police reports. The monstrous realism of human existence — when people kill each other because of skin color, political views or just so; to kill a man who may yet yesterday I sat with you in the subway or at the next table in a cafe, and today, you spill it. the blood simply because it should be.

In addition, I want to warn you that the film is almost two and a half hours, and the main events begin after about 45 minutes, so don't wait the first chord, the explosion of emotions. At first, the audience to quietly and carefully get acquainted with all the characters that will participate in the hotel scenes. Of course, many people do not like many feel the film is overly boring and lengthy, but in defense of it's worth it, because before the main events in front of me were revealed, almost all I need characters to fully empathize with each separately. Funny, but by viewing this picture, I remembered the Oscar-winning "Secrets of Los Angeles" with Russell Crowe in the title role. In General, anyone who loves social drama and very tense detectives, nice view.
