Sporadically interesting film with over-present, over-"meditative" narrator
10 March 2008 | by CitizenDainSee all my reviews

Just saw this film. Some nice photography capturing New York City, but the fact that it was not shot on film is painfully obvious. The writer is too present in the film, as the on-screen narrator. The film would have been more interesting if every interview wasn't inter-cut with shots of the narrator looking into the sunset, trying hard to convey the fact that he is meditating on New York City. Many of the interviewers say cliché things that have been said over and over ("New York City has a pulse, it has a rhythm", etc.), but some of the interviewers, especially Liam Neeson and Frank McCourt, have some really interesting things to say.

Overall, it was interesting if you already really love New York City, but I was thankful it was only 70 minutes long. See "The Cruise" instead.
