"The most moving documentary I have seen in years. Both an ardent love letter to past vitality and a grateful salute to those who remain in place - the survivors, utterly without illusion, who refuse to leave. The filmmakers are so attuned to color and to shade that I was amazed by the handsomeness of what I was seeing. I'm not being perverse, this is a beautiful film."
- David Denby, THE NEW YORKER
"Of all the Sundance films tackling the gap between the richest 1% and the rest of the nation, the documentary 'Detropia' stands out for how it encapsulates the causes and potential solutions."
- John Horn, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES
"DETROPIA successfully symbolizes Detroit and nation's anguish."
- Tom Long, THE DETROIT NEWS
"This haunting piece of documentary cinema tells the story of one city in economic decay; but really, as the real people in the film repeatedly state, this isn't just a Detroit problem; it's an American problem."
- Tambay, INDIEWIRE
"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. "
- Keith Uhlich, TIME OUT NEW YORK
"The defeat of the middle class that has comprised the last decade of Detroit's history. That painful story and its meaning for the rest of America is the subject of Detropia, an important, heartbreaking, and yet still occasionally hilarious documentary."
"With evocative music and hauntingly lovely cinematography, "Detropia" conveys some of the emptiness and beauty of the city while delving deeply into the economic battering it has taken."
- DETROIT FREE PRESS
"...Detropia succeeds in stoking our concern for a place most Americans have never visited."
- THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"Detropia is less an analysis than a poetic elegy…a potent snapshot of a potential future for many American cities."
"The images speak for themselves, not least because they're so beautifully considered and composed. As handheld, faux-documentary 'realism' becomes the dominant mode of indie narrative films, the standout documentaries are the ones that tack the other way, embracing the cinematic possibilities of the real."
- THE VILLAGE VOICE
"Twenty years after Michael Moore mourned the decline of the auto economy of Flint Michigan in Roger & Me, Detropia is a hymn to the collapse of the more distressed and dangerous Detroit nearby."
