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.

The current iteration of the Detroit story is the single most important story about how the Rust Belt is changed by the U.S. economy and by the automobile industry. This film tells it with great skill, without being preachy or sentimental. It is not the only story, but it is one of the most important ones. This film, unlike the documentary Detroit Rising, tells the stories of all those people in the Detroit area who were affected by the auto industry and who have lived through it, in the real sense, and who are now trying to right the mistakes that were made. I've never been to Detroit, but I've seen the news reports, and I know it's a city of long gone dreams and beautiful, quiet beauty. The film tells the stories of these people and makes them real. I've read other comments, and there's a lot of language that was inappropriate or not needed. I don't believe that the director intended that. What I believe is that he has a different point of view. He is telling stories, and he's telling the stories of those people, but he's telling them with the camera and with great skill. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to see the truth about the American Dream. A good documentary, but a good documentary about the American Dream.

I think this film is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It's a very powerful film. The documentary is very well done, the pictures are absolutely fantastic. The best part is that I really don't know where to begin. It's really a wonderful film. I'm not a big fan of the director but I'm very glad he did this. It's very well done. I think it's very important to understand the roots of our present condition and what it means to be human. It's also important to understand that there are no easy solutions. We need to work and to fight for our future. I think that this documentary is very important and I strongly recommend it to all of my friends and family. It's a must see.

I saw this film for the first time a couple of weeks ago and am so grateful to have been exposed to it. It is a visual feast, beautifully captured and the narrative is fascinating and fascinating. It is a film about Detroit and about the civil rights movement and is not just about the beauty of the city but also about the power of art. It is a story of triumph, of being able to fight back against oppression and it is a story of hope. This film is a powerful one, but the real power comes from the story and from the director's ability to tell it in such a way that it is so easy to absorb. The story begins in the late 1940's when the Southern blacks who were once the majority in Detroit were brutally oppressed by Jim Crow and forced to live in the segregated ghettos. As the Civil Rights movement took hold, the black community was given a voice in a process of re-segregating the city and that is the beginning of the story. In the 50's the city is now under a new mayor who wants to move forward and re-open the inner city. It is here that the story of the mayor and the people of Detroit begin to intersect. It is here that the people of Detroit are taken to a place of both despair and hope. In the movie, there are many moments that I can point to and I will, but one of the best moments was when the black community is gathered at the end of the film. The film captures this moment perfectly and you feel like you are there with them. It is the sort of moment that makes you feel like you are watching a real life story, and you are. The movie was not perfect. It was not perfect at all, but it was so well done and so well told that it was not a problem. It was really an amazing experience and I highly recommend seeing it. This film is a story of the power of art and of hope. It is a story about the power of music and of love. It is a story about a city, and a people, and a story about a community.

I was so impressed by the movie. I had no idea what it was about. I thought it would be a typical "documentary" type thing. I was wrong. I was pleasantly surprised. The film has a documentary style to it. It is not like a typical movie. There are no characters. The director does not tell us what to think or feel. We are left to our own minds. I have to say that this is a very good movie. It is very important to people who have been touched by the city of Detroit. It also gives a good idea of what life is like for the people who live there. I recommend it to everyone who wants to know more about this subject.

I have watched the whole film. I do not agree with the comments on the German version. The film was not really anti-German, more anti-American. But the film was not a complete documentary either. The German version is very similar to the American version, and in my opinion, that's the only reason for the German version to have the same title. But I understand why the Germans made a film with the same title. The film is not perfect, and does not go into the whole of the German civil war. But I think it's a great film, and definitely not a waste of time. It's interesting to see how the film ends. I do not think it is important to finish the film to the end. It is a good film. I recommend it to people who want to see the other side of the story.

I really liked this film. I've always been fascinated by the Detroit riots, but this documentary is more about the "Detroit Dream" than the riots themselves. The documentary is amazing, as it takes you to the place where the riots started, but also tells you the lives of the people who were affected by the riots. The rioting is a kind of social experiment, where you are going to watch people rioting, but also watching them in their everyday lives, and even their thoughts and attitudes. The film really captures the emotional intensity of the riots, and makes you feel really sad and angry, but at the same time makes you feel that this was a really important moment in Detroit's history. The way the film goes from one person to the next really keeps you interested, and it also tells you about the different personalities and the different reactions that the people had to the riots. The documentary is really powerful, and I'm sure that it will make you think about what you've seen. It's really a good documentary, and it will be a good film for people who are interested in the rioting of Detroit. I also recommend this documentary to people who are interested in how different people react to the riots of their city.

Just saw this movie in Manchester at the Manchester International Film Festival. I thought it was a very good movie, I enjoyed it immensely. The film is about the decline and demise of Detroit and the American Dream. The film follows two Detroiters who are passionate about their city and the American Dream. The film is a true testament to the American Dream and its importance in a city. The film is an inspiration to all people, and it is a must watch for anyone who is passionate about the American Dream.

I had never heard of this documentary before and I was pleasantly surprised. I love Detroit and am glad that people are taking notice of what is going on. The people are extremely proud of their city and how they got here and what they have to do to keep it there. I hope that more people will learn about this movie. I'm a proud Detroitite and I look forward to seeing the film. I think that a lot of people should see it and that is what I want them to do. I hope that the movie is nominated for a lot of awards. I would love to see it win a couple of awards. I was surprised that it was shot in Detroit, but I'm happy that it was filmed there. It's a great city. I am so glad that people are taking notice of what is going on in Detroit. It's a great story and it is so much fun to watch. The music is great, too. I think that the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is very impressive and they did a fantastic job. I hope that the orchestra does well in the Oscars. I am glad that Detroit is doing well in the movies. I think that it is great that the people are proud of Detroit and I hope that the people that do not live there watch this film and learn about what's going on in Detroit. It's great to see that people are going to see this movie and learn about Detroit. I love the music and I love the people in Detroit. It is very fun to watch this movie and I am glad that I watched it. It is very exciting to see how the people of Detroit are doing and what's going on. I am very proud of the people of Detroit and I am glad that they are doing so well.

I love this film. It shows the people of Detroit, especially Detroit's African American residents. It also shows the problems that African Americans have been through and the poverty that they live in. It is an amazing documentary that is well worth watching.

I have been a fan of The People's Theatre for over a decade. I attended the first show in the fall of 2002. I am so pleased that we have an opportunity to get this film made again. I know that the film is still in development, but I would like to get some initial feedback from the producers and director about how they feel about the film. I would like to know what you would like to see in the film. The film would be best served if the director and producer met to discuss what they feel will be best. I know that the producers and director are people of many different backgrounds and beliefs, so I hope that they would be willing to meet with me and discuss their ideas and thoughts about the film. This would be a good opportunity to hear what they have to say about the film and possibly even see it if they have not already. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Neil Lewis

The documentary "Detroit" is a story of one family's struggle to stay afloat in the city's poor neighborhoods. The film follows the story of Janice and Michael, a couple in their sixties who own a convenience store and a deli. They are trying to rebuild their life in Detroit after the sudden death of their son. The film follows them as they deal with their loss, the daily struggles of their small business, the hardship of their small town, and the challenges they face in dealing with the growing urban decay. The film is full of colorful scenes and it is amazing to see how people have responded to the problem of decay in the city. The film really brings home the hardships of the city and shows how its people have been affected by it. The film has a great message of hope for the city and it does a great job of showing how one family has found hope in the city. This film is a wonderful reminder of how great a city Detroit really is. I really liked this film and would recommend it to anyone.

The stories of these Detroit musicians are fascinating. Many of them are the stuff of legend. This documentary, like the music itself, is brilliant. The camera is right at the feet of the musicians, and so is the story of their incredible life and the people who love them. The performances are amazing. I love the way the camera is focused on the musicians. You feel like you're in the moment with them. The interviewees are just incredible, and it's great to see them on film. The music is wonderful, and the musicians are wonderful, and the story is great. It's a must-see for anyone who loves music, or music documentaries, or any fan of the great music that Detroit has to offer. I give it a 10, and recommend it to anyone who loves music, or anyone who loves to learn about music. Highly recommended.

This is a must see documentary that should be on everyones list of movies to see. The film is a great one to view. I was so moved by the experience and the story behind it that I'm going to purchase the DVD and watch it over and over. The story behind the movie is not the best part, but it's the most important part. If you want to be a better person and understand the world you live in, then this movie is for you.

What a great movie! I was very impressed with how the movie began. The first 30 minutes were extremely entertaining. After that the movie was slow, but very interesting. The best part was that the filmmakers made a point to include things that are not often seen in a movie. They included a discussion on what it means to be a minority. As a person who was born and raised in the city of Detroit, I really felt like I was there. The filmmakers did a great job of putting together a documentary that was both informative and entertaining. Overall, I thought the movie was great and very informative. The film is very well-done. I would recommend the movie to anyone who wants to learn more about Detroit's struggle with racial inequality and the racial issues that affect the African American community. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in finding out more about the city of Detroit.
