Description 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.

Of course, there were certain moments when the subjects of this documentary could not be told in any other way. For instance, the moment where one of the Detroit hoods says, "We all deserve to die", and his speech ended with the words "The God given right to be alive." What made me laugh the most was that the subjects of the documentary were at all times sober and hard-working. But still, it was hard to watch some of these people suffer because of the things they did. And there were many moments when the pain was really overwhelming. At times, the pain was so overpowering that it was painful to watch. I did not really know what to expect from this documentary. Although it did not give a detailed description of the conditions of the people who lived in Detroit, it did describe some of the things that were going on in their lives. It showed them in a completely different light, which I liked very much. But in the end, the documentary was not really about the people of Detroit. It was more about the conditions in the city itself. For instance, there was one interview with a former resident of the city who says that "Detroit is the most corrupted city in America, but it's not corrupt in the best sense. It's like a river, which has been polluted and polluted." In other words, if you look at the problems of the city, you will find nothing that has been tainted. In other words, it's a great city. You just have to be able to take it for what it is. And the fact that the documentary was a little more detailed than that did not hurt my enjoyment. Still, I do think that there were some facts that did not make sense, like the fact that the documentary was about the people of Detroit, but not about the city itself. In other words, it does not really go into how the city was being run in the beginning. There were a few scenes in the documentary where people were complaining about their water and electricity, but they did not really say anything about the city itself. This is a huge flaw in the documentary, because it did not really give a good description of the city and the people of Detroit. To tell the truth, I am not a huge fan of documentaries. I am not very good at listening to them and they can be a bit boring for me. Nevertheless, this documentary was a little more interesting than most documentaries that I have seen lately. I give this documentary a rating of 7/10, since I did enjoy it a lot. Not a great documentary, but a good documentary. But if you have nothing better to do, watch it.

The city of Detroit looks the way it does because of a number of factors. Most of these things are economic (a thriving auto industry, high tax rates, etc.), but others are cultural (a booming population of small businesses). This film looks at some of the most critical of these, and the tragedy of Detroit's decline. From the period of 1964 to 1997, the population of Detroit was almost doubled. The average age of the residents has increased from 35 to 41. In this time, nearly 100,000 jobs have disappeared, and the city's population has shrunk from its previous high. The state of Michigan is the only state in the nation that has shrunk its population. The population of Chicago is about half that of Detroit, but the city has grown and is now the second largest city in the country. For decades, the people of Detroit never wanted to be in the state of Michigan. They wanted to be in a place where they could be. This film looks at the Detroit of the 1960s through the present. The film looks at things like the "Laugh-in," the uprising of the "Black Panther Party," and the "Little Theater," a film that served as a model for the "Main Street Film Festival." The Detroit of the 60s, which had many problems, was a result of an economic boom. The economic boom began in the late 40s and continued into the 50s, and the city thrived. The story is told in a chronological order, and the film is presented in a monochromatic style, even though it has a lot of historical footage from that time period. A large amount of the historical footage was culled from a number of sources. These include interviews with veterans of the era, as well as interviews with the city's current residents. The film provides great information about the city's economic and cultural history, but it also provides many facts about the issues that have led to the problems of the city. The film is very informative, and the events that happened in Detroit are given their due in the film. The acting is great in the film. It is clear that many of the people involved in this project had a lot of fun making the film, and it shows. I especially liked Jon Hamm as an older man who seems to have a lot of energy. Mark Ruffalo was also great as an actor. My favorite of the film was Greg Kinnear as Mayor Coleman Young. He played the part of a man who was very angry and frustrated, but also very compassionate. I found that his anger was perfectly represented in his face, and I also found his compassion to be very important in his expression. I also really liked Michael Stuhlbarg as a man who was the sole survivor of the uprising of the "Black Panther Party." He was a very good and fitting choice for this role. This film is definitely worth seeing. It is quite entertaining, and it is definitely a must-see for all people who care about the Detroit of the 1960s.

I thought the movie was interesting, with some interesting interviews with some interesting people. It is about the Detroit and the inner city and how the people who live there are affected by it. There are some bad things, but overall it is a good look at the effect of this phenomenon on people. It was interesting to see all the different types of people, including the religious people, who have lived in the inner city and how it has affected their lives and their families. It is like a documentary, but I think it was interesting to see how different people responded to the situations. The stories were very interesting, but I think if they had left out a few of the interviews, it would have been very dull. The documentary format does not seem to be very well done. It is not well edited or well done in general. There were times when I found myself wondering where this was going and didn't know what the next scene was going to be about. However, there were also parts that I found really interesting. This is definitely not a movie that I would go out of my way to see, but it was definitely worth the watch. I do think it was very insightful and worth the time it took to watch it. It is good to see some real and interesting people talking about what they have been through. I would definitely recommend it to people who are interested in the Detroit area and the effect that it has on people. I would say that it is a good movie to watch if you want to see some real and interesting people talking.
