A Great Film Showing Both Sides Of 1967 Riots All Lives Matter
6 August 2017 | by (Rock Springs ,Wyoming) – See all my reviews

Watched Detroit With John Boyega(Star Wars:The Force Awakens,The Circle) as Security Guard Melvin Dismukes . Also Starring Will Poulter(The Revenant) as Phillip Krauss, Jacob Latimore(Sleight) as Fred Temple, Jason Mitchell(Straight Outta Compton) as Carl Cooper, Hannah Murray(Game Of Thrones) as Julie Ann .Jack Reynor(MacBeth) as Demens, John Kransinski(13 Hours) as Attorney Auerbach, Chris Chalk(12 Years A Slave) as Officer Frank, Anthony Mackie(Captain America:Civil War) as Greene, Laz Alonso(Person Of Interest) as John Conyers Jr.The Film was enlightening How some corrupt Police Officers can be regardless also how they violated humiliated everyone Including innocent Blacks and Women at the Hotel Algiers in the infamous 1967 Riots and how some of the simplest things can be just Misunderstood by the Law also 1967 Riots was Wrong Everyone was Wrong Some of The Black Rioters and Some of The Detroit Police Department but aside from Boyega Gave an Oscar Worthy Performance, Also Poulter deserves an Oscar Nomination for a Playing Character as Bad As Ramsey Bolton in also

Murray had a great screen Debut Im seeing this at the 90th Academy taking home several Awards as well Potentially another Best Picture Win For Kathryn Bigelow A Great Film Showing Both Sides of 1967 Riots my Only Issue was it dragged a bit near the End All Lives Matter .Costume Design By Francine Jamison-Tanchuck(The Birth Of A Nation),Cinematography By Barry Ackroyd(The Hurt Locker) .Screenplay By Mark Boal(In The Valley Of Elah) and Direction By Kathryn Bigelow(Zero Dark Thirty) A Great Film Showing Both Sides Of 1967 Riots 9/10
