116 - Detroit
Let's take a trip back to 1967, Detroit Michigan, Shahir and Matt were merely twinkles in their respective dad's eyes and the Algiers hotel was about to become the scene of a horrific hostage crisis.
Kathryn Bigelow's "Detroit" may not be the summer escapism you're looking for, but it makes for a fascinating discussion point about the cultural ownership of tragedy and who gets to retell stories of the past.
We're also going to participate in the NYC One Film event, so please go to www.nyc.gov/onefilm to cast your vote for the one film to rule them all.
Error and Omission: Shahir incorrectly cites Katheryn Bigelow's "Near Dark" as featuring Christopher Lambert. Near Dark in fact stars Adrian Pasdar.
