Detropia Reviews

Jesse Cataldo
Slant Magazine

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

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

The dreamlike visual approach makes for undeniably good cinema but as a meaningful examination of why Detroit unraveled, what it's facing, and where it might go, it's woefully inadequate portraiture.

Artfully - perhaps too artfully - illustrates the transformation of the Motor City from a middle-class utopia to an urban nightmare of blight, crime and fleeing residents.

A sobering, sentimental journey through crumbling Detroit -- but one lacking any real intellectual punch.

"Detropia" feels somewhere between loose (which is good) and aimless (which isn't).

Doc about Detroit's state of abandonment offers snapshots and sounds but little new information.

Detropia's filmmakers stay out of the picture, hanging back to allow the viewer to absorb the meaning of Detroit's fate. It is even more complex than we thought.

A fascinating portrait of a 21st-century post-industrial hellscape.

Grady and Ewing, employing the observational, often visually poetic style that has become their trademark, capture this city at a crossroads.

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

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

Via beautiful cinematography, the film wanders the city, contrasting a new automaker's towers with abandoned hotels, derelict theaters, ruined houses and people walking through the snow down the middle of streets because there's no traffic.

'Detropia' is a tone poem, an impressionistic mosaic that gives you a sense of the city and a pandemic of pessimism that challenges those who elect to stay.

Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady evoke the human heart of the economic malaise that's eating away at the core of this country, while pointing the way toward better days ahead.

City services are shutting down, schools are closing, houses are being demo'd by the thousands - like lights being turned out one by one, "Detropia" powerfully captures a city fighting not to go dark.

A simultaneously surrealistic and sobering warning that the Motor City's host of woes might be coming soon to a town near you!

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