2018 Detroit Film Critics Society Awards Nominations

It’s the time for those few critical minded film folk to unleash their nominations in Detroit. That’s the land of the Tigers and RoboCop. At this stage we’re just looking for a change in the norm, the direction of the wind, a shift of perspective here and there this awards season.
