Movie Reviews

A great mind.

"Witnessing Tim Levitch's New York unflold in his honest, artful, poetic monologues is like watching the universe spit out its greatest secrets. The city becomes a living metaphor from the grid system of the streets to the terra-cotta cornices running up a building. Even familiar landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Crystler Building take on new personas in the eyes of Levitch. He champions a simple beauty which holds high above all else individuality which he calls a "beautiful lie". Challenge yourself and everything you think. This is a must-see."
A crazy and informative trip

"This is a great documentary. Timothy is a total riot. I wish I could have taken one of his tours of N.Y.C. He is the kind of New Yorker that make me want to go back again and again. He is full of personality and passion. The world needs more people like Timothy. He is a unique individual in this white bread homoginzed middle of the road wastland we live in."
74 years old and in love with Timothy Levitch

"Timothy Levitch is one of the people that makes New York the wonderland that it will always remain for people like me who grew up there and then were wrested from our roots in the fifties to go where the jobs, (and the apartments)were available, and to finally explore as well that mysterious land beyond the Hudson - and then if we were lucky on to the rest of the world. When we return, we are, alas,only tourists. But what a pleasure to meet Timothy, and ride his bus, his magic carpet, up and down the streets of Manhattan. Timothy: reminds me of Franz Schubert, the boy who despite his inner beauty and his enormous capacity for love, just never got the girl, or the appropriate job, or could make his parents understand that whatever he was, it was not ORDINARY. Timothy: Extraordinary. Will he survive in the world of brand names and fashion madness and where courting position and material wealth is required first and foremost before a man can even be judged to own a soul? I hope so, because as I said: to see him and hear him talk, and watch his sad and gallant walk, is to fall in love with him. If I were 50 years younger we would be walking (gallantly) down Third Avenue, together holding hands and happy."

"This movie needs to go to DVD now. It remains one of the
most powerful expressions of living and respecting each
moment of our lives. Mr. Levitch constantly reminds us to
take the blinders off and not miss any detail of this precious
life we have been handed.
Let's start thinking in terms of making this work of art much more available by putting it on DVD.
But don't let that stop you from buying it. It's worth dusting
off the ol VCR, and you'll watch it over and over. Brilliant!!"
