If you are under the impression that there’s nothing more to be said
about the demise of the auto industry and its terrible impact on working
people after Michael Moore, you owe it to yourself to see “Detropia”, a
documentary that opened yesterday at the IFC Center in New York
(screening information for other cities is here). Dispensing with
Moore’s by now narcissistic intrusion into the narrative, “Detropia”
allows Detroit’s African-Americans to tell their own stories.
Thankfully, it is also free of Moore’s mawkish Capraesque pieties about
“turning things around” by getting Obama elected. Among the lessons we
learn from “Detropia” is that General Motors has used taxpayer money
courtesy of Obama’s “rescue” of the auto industry to set up shop in
China to build the Volt, their new electric car.
