The Cruise Reviews:

The Cruise isn't so much of a movie as it is an awakening. It is the storyline of one of the most unique, interesting, brilliant, and bizarre boys in the most unique, interesting, brilliant, and bizarre of cities. The boy is Timothy "Speed" Levitch. The town is Fresh York. Timothy Levitch is a twentysomething Fresh York Town Bus Tour Guide. This is a nice thing, because Levitch likes to talk, and talk, and then talk some more.Levitch is a philosopher with a special perspective on life: He views all the worlds materials as having a symbiotic relationship with every another in a method not so much cosmic as intertwined. This leads to his belief that The Brooklyn Bridge not only is one of his greatest friends, but the only mate who hasn't allow him down. He also feels that he has had an on again off again relationship with Fresh York City, and he has an ongoing war with the "anti-cruise" forces. See, the anti-cruise forces are those that impose conformity on Levitch. Among others, these contain his Grandmother, the police, and the town map grid.All this may appear to be the ravings of a misguided lunatic, and at first glance Levitch surely fits the bill. Wearing something akin to Elton John's wardrobe, Levitch was a sight to behold at the premiere. However, there is more to him than that. You might not accept with Levitch after seeing this documentary, but you can't dismiss him either. He is often brilliant in his analysis of the inanities that we pass for our everyday reality and routine. In his brilliant critique of the town grid system, when he tells "why don't we just rob all our imagination and wonder," we tend to agree. According to Levitch, we often do.Levitch is just as fascinating on his bus tour, speaking with a vast knowledge of NYC at a pace that demonstrates his nickname, "speed," perfectly. He mentions popular names and apartments in rapid fire succession, fascinating quotes, and interesting bizarre stories that hurl at you so quick that the tour gotta seem like a trip into other universe. And that is exactly the mission of his tale. In one of the opening sequences, he tells that the target of the town tour is to change your view forever.We see him talking and mingling with people, fully stripped of self conscience and convention that pervade our interactions. You see both a boy full of insecurities, but also a boy totally comfortable with them. In fact, you should even tell he revels in them. Without those insecurities, he might not have the hatred of the "anti-cruise" forces that he, and the audience, have so much fun rebelling against.This is never more real than in a fascinating stage when he stands with his mate the Brooklyn Bridge and verbally accosts all those who have done him wrong. These contain girls who have spurned him, students who picked on him, and many others, including his parents. The footage is breathtaking, hysterical, and sad all at the same time. It shows a boy who may or may not have come to peace with his reality, who also totally understands that the globe has not.That scene, and the last one, where Levitch decides whether to launch a door that leads to top of a skyscraper, considering the risk of the alarm going off, are the greatest in the film. That last one, which clearly demonstrates how and why Levitch has made the special choices he has made, is all the more powerful, once we've gotten to know him.The triumph of the filmmakers is in finding the material to start with. Levitch is absolutely fascinating, and the filmmakers have brought this to the surface. They are smart enough to know they have a winner, and their style is for the most part unobtrusive. They present Levitch just being Levitch. Where the movie has triumphed is at the editing level. The film's flow makes sense, and the footage they capture brings us the essence of the man.After these 87 minutes, we feel like we know Levitch. We have seen him laugh, cry, scream, and talk, and talk, and talk. We have gone along for the ride. While we may not be fighting the "anti-cruise" forces after we've seen this story, we did for these 87 minutes. As the telling goes, "There are 8 million stories in the naked city," and we would all be better for seeing this one.


I am a bit surprised to see the negative reviews on here because I thought the movie was an absolute blast! The movie follows an eccentric tour bus tutorial in Fresh York Town who speaks in a special style with a wealth of knowledge about his beloved city. There is no more, on the surface, than that central premise.However, the gentleman starring in this detail is a more interesting hero than one might imagine should exist in such a position. Not only is he quite extraordinarily intelligent, but he has a very unusual perspective and form of delivery that is extremely engaging and fun to listen to.I found myself not wanting the movie to end as I grew to respect some of his concepts more and more. His oddball posture is so special that it feels as though the film front-loads viewers with strangeness, only to let the more relatable side of him to slowly present itself as the movie rolls forward. However, his concepts are simply more available as his delivery becomes more familiar to the viewer. A second viewing of the movie showed me that I was too overwhelmed, in the beginning of it the first time around, by the sheer idiosyncrasy to pay attention enough to follow his line of expression.I highly suggest this film to anyone who likes special characters or really nice contemplative and philosophical conversation.


Timothy "Speed" Levitch is more than just a Fresh York crank, he's a spokesman for the genX drop out philosophy; search the zone you are satisfied in, forget the rest. Forget the conventions, forget the rules. He's cruising because he's in love with everything that is constructive and destructive in himself. That's what a romantic does. And he is the quintessential modern romantic.The Cruise has been criticized as for being a purely sympathetic portrait of Levitch-- but that's what makes it so exhilarating; we are brought to Levitch's method of seeing; we don't come to judge, but to cruise.When I test to think of flaws in this movie, I come up with virtues: that we don't receive enough, that Levitch's secrets are not revealed, that we are left wondering about the reactions of those pastel-visored tourists... these mysteries now augement the movie's charm.I could have given it a nine.
