The American Dream turned into a nightmare for folks in Detroit, who have watched 50 percent of their city's manufacturing jobs disappear. In "Detropia," a documentary by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, you'll follow the struggles of a bar owner, a young blogger, an auto union rep, young artists, and an opera impresario. - June Wulff, Globe Staff

(no rating) September 19, 2012 - Boston.com - Mark Feeney, Globe Staff

Talking Heads has that doomy, edge-of-chaos song, “Life During Wartime.” “Heard about Houston? Heard about Detroit? / Heard about Pittsburgh, PA?” sings David Byrne, his voice itself verging on chaos. That was 1979. Pittsburgh’s doing quite well now, and so long as oil stays above $30 a barrel, Houston has nothing to worry about. Detroit’s another story. What appeared shaky three-plus decades ago now seems in a state of near-collapse.
