Grady and Ewing are exceptionally skilled and sensitive visual storytellers, adroit at recognizing decisive moments and smart enough to let viewers make of them what they will.

Makes a telling case that Detroit has gone beyond recession to a full-blown Depression, just like the 1930s.

This documentary film, about the deconstruction of a great American city, is surprisingly lyrical and often very moving.

A powerful documentary on the demise of the auto industry without Michael Moore's mawkish Capraesque pieties about how Barack Obama will institute a new New Deal and return the working class to its gloried past.

Moving from union hall to town hall, from brutal salary negotiations to contentious plans to create urban farms out of concrete wasteland, the film listens and moves on.

What the movie captures overall looks like a scene from a sci-fi, postapocalyptic nightmare.

The brilliance with this one is pretty subtle, which ought to make it a film you want to watch over and over again.

At times, as Ewing and Grady's cameras prowl its empty streets, the city seems like the world's largest ghost town.

Imagine if Frederick Wiseman and David Lynch had a bastard child, and you'll get a sense of the movie's off-kilter aesthetic, a potent and pointed mix of firsthand observation and surreal flights of fancy.

Detropia seems to be looking for answers, but the ones it finds are too close to the surface to be satisfying.
