All Critics (31) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (31)

  • Green's openness to learning about himself and others by going out to notice and appreciate what most overlook-a crumbled landmark, an unexpected garden-is edifying.

  • It's hard to see Green in action and not think of traditional pilgrims on holy journeys and, perhaps, hermits or monks or others who have withdrawn from regular life.

    December 26, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • While some more skeptical strangers seem to think Green is wasting his time, "World" makes it easy to admire the logic of his explanation that "It's just about the value of paying attention to something."

    November 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • This well-made and intriguing documentary isn't about New York so much as it is about an unusual idea seen to fruition.

    November 21, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Like the apostles who followed Forrest Grump as he ran cross country, one could find Buddhist wisdom or metaphorical meaning in Green's work, even if it's not necessarily there.

    November 21, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Filmmaker Workman, who's behind [Green] every step of the way without ever getting in the way, allows the city and its colorful denizens to take center stage.
