A superficial scratch of city surfaces
17 March 2019 | by mplessSee all my reviews

The insularity of the producers shines brightly in this cursory look at half a dozen "important" cities in the world - half of which are American, like the producers, the historians, and the other interviewees of minor celebrity.

I'm certain there a local historians for London, Paris, and Rome who could provide far better insights than the Americans who chose to opine on these wonderful places. But that might not have been satisfactory for the intended audience.

It could have been far better, far more informative, because the CGI going backwards in time was quite illuminating. Instead, I got the feeling that the non-US cities were regarded as quaint, novel, and not nearly so desirable locations as the "home-grown" ones
