“Detroit” is an uncomfortable, gruelling watch. The physical intimidation, racially-based violence, murders utilized against Larry Cleveland Reed (Algee Smith), Fred Temple (Jacob Latimore) and others as they plead innocence, is sickening. “I will kill you one by one until I find out what's happening here,” says racist, trigger-happy cop Philip Krauss (Will Poulter). Using psychological games and hard-core interrogation tactics he (and a handful of others) terrorizes his suspects and it is gut wrenching. Bigelow has a historical POV setting up the story and in the subsequent court case but her handling of the interrogation sequences is pure psychological horror. Claustrophobic and violent, it is as compelling as it is abhorrent.
