Movie #1764: Detroit Wild City (2010, Florent Tillon)

Documentary about the new Detroit. There's a lot of good stuff here, most of it coming from interviews with regular folk (a repairman, a dog catcher, a gardener) but a lot of nonsense too (the blues singer and a guy sitting in a chair). The "wild" part of the title is because a lot of plants, birds and animals are returning to Detroit. The best scene was a guy mowing a parking lot. You got a bunch of cracked cement and some grass - and this guy is trying to get rid of the grass!
