The comeback of Detroit is poised to be the greatest turnaround story of American history. American Dream: Detroit illustrates why the history and the future of Detroit matters in the global landscape. Grammy winning singer Michael Bolton celebrates the golden age of Detroit - featuring its native entertainment legends like Francis Ford Coppola, Jerry Bruckheimer, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, Alice Cooper, John Varvatos and many more - and reveals the landscape of the new Detroit being built by young visionaries as well as entrepreneurial moguls. Told through the eyes of Bolton's own discovery, this important story has remained until now largely obscured by mainstream media's preference to portray only the devastation of the city's downfall. This is the story of the American Dream.

I was watching this documentary at the cinema with a bunch of friends and I just had to watch it. It's a fantastic documentary, because it makes you think about the people that are affected by the bankruptcy, and how that affects them. The film covers the following issues: 1. The job losses; 2. The rental properties; 3. The housing problems; 4. The real estate values; 5. The hospitals. The people that I knew in Detroit during this time were just devastated, because they lost everything. This documentary really shows the true situation, and it's really inspiring. I really liked this documentary, because it really shows how hard the situation was for the people in Detroit. The film also shows how this affects the people that live in Detroit, because they were the ones that really suffered. I really hope that this documentary will be shown in other countries, because it really is an amazing documentary.

Although I didn't have the heart to walk into the theatre to see this documentary, I did come out of it with a deeper appreciation of the inner workings of a city that has been hit by the economic meltdown of the past decade. I was also moved by the fact that the documentary makers used music to describe the feelings and emotions that the people in Detroit went through when they had to contend with the lack of jobs and the lack of a good future. If you are a Detroit native, this documentary will give you a deeper understanding of what it was like to be a teenager in the 80's and 90's and what it was like to be an adult in the 21st Century. If you are a non-Detroit resident, you will understand the feeling of hopelessness and hopelessness that a city like Detroit must have felt during the 1980's and 1990's. It is sad to see how many of the people that were in the Motor City during those decades have lost their homes and jobs, and they are now facing the prospect of going through the same nightmare that they experienced when they were young. I was particularly moved by the stories of the mothers and fathers who lost their children to drugs and the loss of their livelihoods. It is a heartbreaking story that shows how drugs and other addictions have the power to destroy a family, especially when you are a parent. I have always been a fan of hip hop music, and this documentary was a great addition to my collection of hip hop videos. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in learning more about the inner workings of Detroit. I will certainly be looking for a copy of the documentary when it is released in DVD format.

I'm not sure why this movie is getting so much hate. The fact that it was made and made on a low budget is no reason to hate it. The movie's all about the problems with the Detroit Dream, and what they did to it. It's not a film to celebrate or bash. It's more of a film about how the Detroit Dream, and the people who were in it, have changed, and are now the target of the people who are trying to remake it. If you're a fan of the Detroit Dream, this film is for you.

This is a wonderful film. You can watch it several times and still be able to take it all in. I was expecting a bit of a rant from me, but this was not what I got. It is a very well done film, with a lot of great interviews. The first hour is a bit slow, but the film makes up for it in the second hour. It is a very personal film, about a lot of people's lives, and how they have been affected by the Great Depression. The film is not about the people who lived through it, but it does show a lot of what the people who lived during the Depression were going through. The second hour of the film is a bit more action packed, and it covers the 'Roaring Twenties' boom in Detroit. This is where the film really shines. There is a lot of great music, and great interviews, and there is a lot of great footage of people who lived through the Depression, who are still living in the city today. The film is a great look at the times and a great way to understand the people who lived through the Depression. If you want to know more about the Depression, watch this film, it is very well done, and I recommend it to everyone.

A must see documentary about the forgotten and under appreciated Detroit auto industry. Not only is it fascinating to hear the people who worked there tell their stories, but it's a very informative documentary about the auto industry, which is a very important part of American history. This documentary is also very interesting to see the American Dream of Detroit and how it was changed from a dream to a nightmare. The documentary does a good job of presenting a lot of facts and opinions on the subject. It's not a documentary that will blow your mind, but it is still very informative and entertaining. The film is a very good documentary to watch if you want to learn more about the auto industry.

I just came back from the screening of "Detroit" at the California Film Festival, and what a great movie it was. It was very compelling, very emotional, and even if you didn't want to see it, you had to watch it because it was so well made. It was very well written and directed, and the acting was fantastic. I will definitely be going to see this movie again. I have been to Detroit numerous times, and I still am blown away by the devastation of the city. I hope everyone will go see this movie, because it is an amazing movie and a great way to tell the story of Detroit. A must see.

I am a 20-year-old college graduate and I love this film. I love the "music" of the film and the way it was shot. I love the honesty and raw feeling it gives me. I also love the fact that the director and cinematographer not only got the story out there, but also went out and made a documentary about it. This documentary gives me hope. It shows the true story of how a community of people, who thought the world was flat, ended up in a new place in a new state, and learned to love and accept each other again. I hope this film can open your eyes to the world that is happening now in the United States. I hope it opens your eyes to the world of people who have been disenfranchised for so long, and have been forgotten.

This film is by far the best documentary I have ever seen. It is a testament to the power of the human spirit and the commitment of individuals to the cause of their country. I was also very impressed with the young men and women in this film. It is a very sad and depressing film, but if you are interested in the American Dream you should see this film.

If you are not a true fan of Motor City, or if you've never been to the Motor City, this documentary will make you want to see more. It will be a refreshing change to see the city and its people through the eyes of those who live and work there. It is also an opportunity to see the inner workings of a city that is often overlooked. The Motor City is an American icon, and you can see it in the stories of these men and women. The filmmakers did a great job of keeping it real, and they also did a good job of presenting the real people in a fictional setting. The story of these people is one of the most compelling I've ever seen, and I found myself holding the movie in my hands. I felt as though I was in the car with these people. I've seen many documentaries that have focused on the automobile, but this is the first that has focused on the people that drive the automobile. There is so much to say about the people that drive the automobiles, and the stories that these people tell about them are very moving. The people in the movie are fascinating and inspiring. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys documentary films. The people in the movie are portrayed as real people, and that is what makes the movie so fascinating.

It's interesting to watch people move and live in their own reality, this film does a very good job of showing what the average person experiences when they move out of their traditional American Dream. This film does a great job at showing the struggle of living in Detroit and living out their dreams. I don't know if I would consider myself an "American Dreamer", but I did like this film very much. The film shows how the average American can struggle to find what they want to do, and how the American Dream is something that is just a dream that many people can't have.

This is a movie that should be in the same category as "Straw Dogs" and "The Franklin Cover-Up". It is a must see. You should see it!

I am a fan of the classic 90s indie rock band Fugazi, so this documentary is really interesting. This film has a great story of how they got started and the struggles that they had to overcome. It shows how they were at a point in their life when they were struggling financially, and there was a lot of speculation about whether they would survive. There were rumors that they would be kicked off of the label, which was really hard for them. The only thing they were able to do was put out two albums and have one of them be a breakthrough album. One of the things that I really enjoyed about this film was the fact that it is not the documentary that you would expect. The documentaries are usually really long and pretty boring. This one is pretty short and to the point. It shows them at their best and their worst. I recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of the band. It is definitely worth a watch.

The doc is outstanding. This documentary really shows how the Motor City was and still is a microcosm of America. I was especially impressed by the people who were driving and the history of the roads. I also liked the many interviews with the people who lived, worked, and played in the Motor City and the people who came and went from the Motor City. I think it was very important to have this doc because so many people don't know that there were people who came and went from the Motor City and that the main thing was that they worked hard and that they loved the city and loved what they did. It's a shame that we don't have this documentary on the History Channel. I highly recommend this doc to anyone who is interested in the Motor City. It's a must see for anyone who wants to learn more about the Motor City.

I was very skeptical about going to see this movie, but I went anyway. I had to go because I am a very big fan of the band. I am so glad I went. The music is amazing, and the message is so well-put. The main message that was conveyed was that the success of the band is not due to their music, but because of the people who support them. I believe this movie is going to do great things for the band and the people who support them. I am glad that I went, and I am going to go to see it again. I believe this movie is going to change the lives of so many people. I am very proud to be a fan of the band.

I remember going to a big screening of this movie at the San Francisco International Film Festival. It was a little overwhelming for me, but the film was so powerful, and I was totally blown away. It was as if I was in Detroit during the recession and watching the people I knew then living their lives the way they wanted to live, and their children were living their lives. The film is about the rise of the Detroit Motor City and the people who live there. I have been in Detroit for most of my life and it was so powerful to see the transformation that had taken place. The film is very well done. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a true story of the rise and fall of Detroit. It is a must see.

If you are looking for a good documentary about the automobile industry, this film is for you. It does not offer a definitive view of the history of the car, but it does give you a good understanding of the reasons behind the car's development. It does not attempt to present a factual account of the development of the automobile, but it does give you a good idea of the type of automobiles produced in the US. I think this film is a good starting point for anyone interested in the history of the automobile. The film is well-written and well-edited. The editing is very well done and the interviews are well-done as well. The director does a very good job of telling the story and the way it was told. If you are looking for a documentary, this is a good one.

This documentary is about the Detroit Free Press (FPC), the only newspaper in the Detroit area that was a beacon of honesty, quality journalism, and a voice of conscience in the city. It's a fascinating story, but you may be confused as to what it's about. First, it's about the bankruptcy of the city, which is mentioned at the beginning of the film. Then it's about the FPC's staff, including its owner, editor, and most of its employees. They're all interviewed. Then it's about the other papers, who had to be bailed out, and the FPC. Finally, it's about the city itself, which is actually not very well described, though the city's finances are pretty well understood. The film is very well done, and I'm glad that it's available on DVD, because I'm glad I finally got around to watching it. It's a very interesting story, and I think it's worth seeing. I recommend it.

This is the first documentary I have seen in a long time that actually made me want to learn more about the Detroit area and the people who are affected by the problems in the area. As a city, it is very interesting to see how the problems of the area are being treated by the city government and the government in general. The documentary starts with the Detroit riots of 1967. The riots, which lasted for about two weeks, began after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. By the time the riots ended, almost half of the city was in flames. The film shows the people in the area who were affected by the riots and the many people who were killed during the riots. The film also gives a lot of information about the city and the people who live there. The film is definitely a must-see for anyone interested in Detroit and the people who live there.

I was fortunate enough to see this film at the St. Louis International Film Festival and I have to say I was very impressed. This is not your typical "I'm not a filmmaker but I want to help" documentary, but rather it is an excellent snapshot of the life of a band called "The Detroit Dream" and their journey to the top of the charts. The documentary is very well paced, and makes you feel like you are part of this band's story. I'm not going to go into detail, but it is an excellent story of friendship, success, and the struggle to break through the barriers that may have prevented their success. I really liked the way the director captured the music and the people that play it. I also like the way he shows the relationship between the band and their fans. In one scene, you see a fan who is listening to "Shakedown" by The Doors. I thought it was really cute. I don't want to give too much away, but I thought it was really well done. Overall, I really liked this film and I think it is a really important documentary for anyone who loves music.

What a wonderful documentary. At first I was skeptical, but this documentary brought me back to my memories of the 1970's. I have a huge respect for the people who made this documentary. The video itself is fantastic, and the music is timeless. The humor is funny, and the photography is incredible. I highly recommend this documentary to everyone. If you can watch it in a theater, go for it. You won't regret it. I would love to meet the people who made this documentary and hear their stories. I am so glad I watched this documentary and will be sharing it with my friends and family. This documentary was made in 2015, but I think it still holds up today. This documentary is definitely worth a watch. This documentary is something that I will be able to share with my family and friends.
