The Cruise


An unforgettable portrait of a truly original human being who happens to give tours of New York City on a double decker bus. The hero, Timmy “Speed” is either mentally ill or one of the most profound living poets. Or both. You can’t tell. For sure, here is someone who “thinks different.” By the end you get to see cities, society, the whole world in his offbeat, zany way, and it’s a real kicker. The tour is worth repeating several times.
