  1. alvaro03's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    Uno espera ver en un documental mas información del tema tratado que el que aqui se hace. Tampoco un tratado sesudo pero si algo mas que las imágenes. Lo mejor son las impresionantes imágenes de la ciudad desierta y los edificios abandonados, pero falta que nos enseñe el día a día de esa ciudad, para comprobar si esa ciudad fantasma que dibuja es así en realidad y a todas horas. Nota: 5

  2. INVISIBLE | Gazette #3's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    This movie lacks a strong narration.But, it glimpses into this post apocalyptic, post-modern Detroit (in the most literal sense possible). The shots are not great, de found footage is ok, but the pace lacks of rythm... its not just slow, but it is not a heavy slowness such as that one of Bela Tarr for example... (It sheds a little light though... and shares the will to shoot a movie on this subject) --Lorenzo Canina

  3. Matt Bowden's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    Tillon combines stunning cinematography with strong characters (both human and architectural) to create a documentary that generates awe in the viewer. The film does a fine job of creating a strong sense of the magnitude of Detroit's decline from a bustling manufacturing powerhouse to post-industrial basket case. Worth watching for the film's beauty alone, it also provokes thought on a number of levels.

  4. Cid Medeiros's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    A tale of the industrial city. The documentary emphasizes the failure of the project thought to Detroit. In the meantime it explores how people are reinvent life at this ghost city. Then farming and recycling is shown as the major strategies in place. I highlight the Detroit "thinker" interviewed whom gives us great insights about the evolving city psychology.

  5. Schyler Hopkins's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    Paved with good intentions, but ultimately falls flat in a market already over saturated with documentaries about Detroit. Stick with Detroit Lives or even Animal Cops Detroit for a more absorbing portrait of the city and its residents.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    An elegy for a city. A word of warning to the dying of capitalism in America. The factories close leaving behind the workers. They lose their jobs, their homes, their abilities to cloth and feed themselves. Left behind the buildings, the homes ; remnants of past prosperity. Film tries to leave some hope with a 'back to the earth' message but neither the people uddering it or us watching it believe it. Beware.

  8. Frank's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    Post apocalyptic Detroit with some hope - return to the land and nature - nicely paced - some beautiful shots

  9. Chuck Vollers's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    A fine film. Almost gives one hope.

  10. Katya Kazbek's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    The poetry of post-rapture emptiness is simply stunning. Yes, probably there are other Detroit-themed films with a more hands-on approach to storytelling but this is a city symphony at its' best, on a par with the 1920s' greats. One can only hope that Florent Tillon's career is long and lucrative and he'll be able to cover a lot of ground — literally.

  11. Piotr Piotrowski's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    Very good and beautiful film!!Detroit City of Hope!!

  12. Jason Perdue's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    Beautiful film. Paced to allow the audience to ponder the ruins, the past, the future, and ultimately if Detroit is the canary in the coal mine for the rest of America.

  13. odjur-odjur's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    Beautifully shot. Tragically true to life - As a native midwesterner, dwc, for me, is a painful reminder of Michigan's reputation as the poorest and most crime-ridden major American city..... but then the gentle humanistic conveyance of sustainable hopefuls left me a sense of pride as Detroit soldiers on despite shocking adversity. shorthand: bitter.sweet.

  14. Charles Fairbanks's rating of the film Detroit Wild City

    i've spent lots of time in detroit, and watched many movies on detroit, and this is the only one that is not either too apocalyptic or too utopic. it's beautiful, both aesthetically and humanistically, and i'd say it covers the biggest challenges, characteristics, and hopes of the city. two thumbs up.
