"The most moving documentary I've 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

"SPELLBINDING! 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 moves with dreamlike fluidity between union halls and nightclubs, from abandoned factories to the Detroit opera house."
-Keith Uhlich, TIME OUT NEW YORK

"The evocative new documentary from filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (Jesus Camp) is a portrait of a city that rose on utopian dreams, and then began a long decline to its current state of life support, all in just less than a century. The filmmakers pay elegy to the Detroit of the Motown era, with its thriving middle class supported by manufacturing. At the same time, they're honest about the fact that the version of Detroit local partisans yearn for is long gone and most likely not coming back."
-Karina Longworth, THE VILLAGE VOICE

"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 A. Obenson, INDIEWIRE

"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 and Steven Zeitchik, LOS ANGELES TIMES

"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."
-Tim Wu, SLATE
