After not having seen a film in so long... I caught Bennett Miller's "The Cruise". This 1998 documentary film centers on Timothy "Speed" Levitch who is a bus tour guide in New York City. While watching it I couldn't help but think about Terence Davies's excellent 2008 film "Of Time and the City" which was centered in Liverpool. I recently watched it and felt like it was still lingering in my head. They both helped me understand the feeling of time and place with such vast knowledge of their individual cities while philosophically exploring so much about it's culture and people.
