A fantastic new voice in film
10 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director Rola Nashef brings a unique voice to indie cinema with this fantastic story about the lives that revolve around the family gas station.

It's a serious story - Will Mike (the manager) use the family gas station as a springboard to upward mobility? And will Sami get a visit from his sweetheart Naj?

But "Detroit Unleaded" has its comedic moments too - Some of the customers deliver hilarious one-liners that come straight out of the heart of Detroit in the middle of the night.

There's a reason why this film is winning awards at festivals everywhere. "Detroit Unleaded" is a terrific, fun film, and an important new voice in cinema.
