Strange Days. Kathryn Bigelow. 1995. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Always thought Bigelow's torture porn thing was a post-9/11 sellout maneuver extraordinaire, but turns out, she's just obsessed w/ sadism! There's a rape scene shot from a "first person shooter" POV, for Pete's sake! Great flick but ending shits the bed. Poised for apocalyptic mega riot, instead we get.. "cops eventually do the right thing." SMH! Now I'm wondering-- is Detroit a belated reaction to Strange Days? Hm.
