The Cruise (1998)
First screened in April 2014
Director: Bennett Miller. Documentary about New York City tour guide and eccentric raconteur Timothy "Speed" Levitch.

Twitter Capsule: Affectionate tribute and cautionary sketch of tour guide who mostly talks to himself. Funny, with a lump in its throat.

VOR:   Eventually, this New York may look and sound as distant as those we pine for in older films. And Levitch is quite a character. Missable, I guess, but once you've seen it, hard to forget.
