Quite Fascinating
6 September 2019 | by larrys3See all my reviews

I really like documentaries like this, as I find them quite fascinating. In this case, the camera follows Matt Green, with clips from his 8,000 mile trek walking the streets of the 5 boroughs of NYC, over a 6 year period.

Green is a former civil engineer who disliked what he was doing and made a decision in his life to pursue what he really loved to do. Following a walk across America, he embarked on the NYC walk, filmed and directed by Jeremy Workman, whose doc "Magical Universe" I also found to be very fascinating.

Green is an engaging guy and his interactions with the New Yorkers he meets along the way brings forth their support for him and their curiosity, with only a few being suspicious or even hostile. His visits to NYC cemeteries, parks, wall murals (many commemorating the heroes and victims of 9/11), even vacant land left barren for years after projects never got off the ground, and so much more just showed me how much I missed having lived in NYC for over thirty years.

Green takes the information he garners very seriously and does research to learn even more about what he's come across during the day. He meticulously posts his daily walks on his blog each night, as well.

Overall, just a most interesting and engaging film, but realizing that it may not appeal to everyone,
