One of the funniest documentaries I've seen in recent memory, "The Cruise" is a tour of New York from the vantage point of Timothy Levitch, an incredibly entertaining tour guide working aboard a double-decker bus. By the film's end, it becomes apparent that the documentary has become more about the bizarre tour guide than the city he is showing us. He wanders around hugging architecture, talking to flowers, and spinning himself until he's dizzy so that he can look up at the buildings and imagine them falling on himself. But aside from these amusing antics, he also talks about the desire to escape civilization, to have his grandparents' approval, and find a woman he can run naked through a field of wheat with. He speaks both comically and poetically, keeping the film interesting for nearly its entire running time.
