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.

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.
