The Cruise is a lucid debut from Bennett Miller, who seems to capture his subject's soul in this fascinating documentary about a tour guide, a poet, and (above all else) a cruiser. Levitch's knowledge of New York is unrivaled and his diatribes are profound. The penultimate scene where Speed twirls around in between the Two Towers is very powerful and poetic. 9/10
1998 feels like such a long time ago. The New York I'm in almost feels like another world. It is a living organism that has transformed a lot. The talk of the two towers feel eerie, especially when he talks about spinning in between them getting the sensation that they're about to fall. Love him or hate him, Speed undeniably has a knack for syntax. I wonder where he is now. I hope he's not working in an Apple Store.
