      Leah Pickett Chicago Reader Green's openness to learning about himself and others by going out to notice and appreciate what most overlook-a crumbled landmark, an unexpected garden-is edifying. Jan 31, 2019 Full Review Walter V. Addiego San Francisco Chronicle It's hard to see Green in action and not think of traditional pilgrims on holy journeys and, perhaps, hermits or monks or others who have withdrawn from regular life. Rated: 3/4 Dec 26, 2018 Full Review Dennis Harvey Variety While some more skeptical strangers seem to think Green is wasting his time, "World" makes it easy to admire the logic of his explanation that "It's just about the value of paying attention to something." Nov 22, 2018 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com The mundane, methodical commitment is part of the brilliance of Green's story. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Sep 27, 2020 Full Review Allen Almachar The MacGuffin The film reinforces the idea that - as sentimental as it may sound - life is about the journey, not the destination. Rated: B+ Jul 17, 2020 Full Review Alison Gillmor Winnipeg Free Press Green isn't much good at self-promotion. He's enthusiastic, thoughtful and sincere about every step he takes, and his attitude spreads to documentarian Jeremy Workman and, by extension, to us. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 28, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member I felt inspired to walk more in my city. Learned a lot about New York history and plants. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review dave d Jeremy Workman's documentary "The World Before Your Feet" about a man who is walking every public street, sidewalk and path in New York City is watchable if you have any interest in a fascinating city. When walker Matt Green is talking to random people the film grinds to a halt, but when he describes landmarks, especially ones even a New Yorker may not be as familiar with the film is at its best. The compilations of things like cemeteries or 9-11 memorials work, but when Green goes a bit off the rails and gives his opinions the movie slows. It's a mixed bag, but the visuals are worth it if you like this kind of thing. Final Score: 6.1/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Engaging and fascinating documentary that I liked quite a bit. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A nice way to spend 95 minutes and seeing life through a different point of view which is ALWAYS a good thing, especially in 2019! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member A good documentary, if you like this sort of thing. But 100% fresh score among critics may give you unrealistic expectations. There is no plot, and nothing particularly profound here. Just a guy wandering the streets of New York City, meeting people, noticing things of interest along the way, doing research about the places he is visiting. For me, the biggest revelation is the diversity of scenery to be found in the many neighborhoods of New York City. It is so much more than just tall buildings and Times Square. Matt is a likeable guy, and obviously in pretty good shape to do so much walking. But I worry that he is not eating enough fruits and vegetables. I think he needs more variety in his diet... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved this film. A beautiful reminder of the diversity of the people and places in NYC - and a reminder to slow down occasionally to appreciate the small things (birdsong, community gardens, conversation w strangers). Highly recommend the film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/19 Full Review Read all reviews
