Audience Reviews for The Cruise

Documentary with New York City tour guide Tim Levich. I watched this because it was on an interview with actor Edward Norton's, and this was among his 5 favorite films. I liked his other 4, so thought I would give it a try. It was interesting, I can't say I loved it though. Tim Levich is as fascinating as he is informative as he is irritating. Wonderful footage of New York, and even though I have lived there in the past, I still learned new things. Not for all tastes, but admire the effort.
