Director Bennett Miller's documentary portrait of tour bus guide/street philosopher Timothy (Speed) Levitch is an unsummarizable comedy, tragedy, love letter to the city and the anatomy of innocence.

I get letters from people who would like to make a movie. My advice could be, find a subject like Speed Levitch and follow him around with a video camera. That's what Bennett Miller did -- directing, producing and photographing The Cruise.

Is there a more annoying person than Timothy Speed Levitch?

September 28, 2002 | Rating: 1/5

A zany, bizarre documentary that matches the energy and eccentricity of New York City.

The documentary works so well because Speed's for real, as is his flowery monologue and his genuine NYC nasal accent.

Levitch is a subject compelling enough to remind us of the ecstatic joy that can come from the simple act of walking through a door.

A most unique character study.
