Affectionate portrait of Tim "Speed" Levitch, a tour guide for Manhattan's Gray Line double-decker buses. He talks fast, is in love with the city, and dispenses historical facts, architectural analysis, and philosophical musings in equal measures. He's reflective and funny about cruising: he loves it, got in it to meet women, and he'd quit work if he could. His personal life is disclosed in small doses: he takes home $200 a week for 20 hours work, home is his suitcase and wherever he can flop, he's been arrested for going out on the roof tops of skyscrapers to see his city; he stands between the towers of the World Trade Center, spins until he's dizzy, then looks up. Written by
Timothy 'Speed' Levitch:
By saying that everyone likes The Grid Plan you're saying, "I'm going to relive all the mistakes my parents made. I'm going to identify and relive all the sorrows my mother ever lived through. I will propagate and create dysfunctional children in the same dysfunctional way that I was raised. I will spread neurosis throughout the landscape and do my best to recreate myself and the damages of my life for the next generation."

A fantastic ride with an unforgettable character , who is the GenX's Woody Allen
For anyone who has spent any time with New York or New Yorkers, this film is a must see. After you spend 90+ minutes with Timothy Levitch, you have to love the guy and hope that nothing tragic ever happens to him. I'd love to see him make a successful transition to the late night talk show circuit. Timothy Levitch is just a precious, complex jewel of a person. May he live long and prosper.
The director had a very cooperative subject, who is very comfortable being his unaffected self.
