No disrespect to the film's Irish creator. This film glosses over some realities of living in NYC. Other glaring omissions come to mind when watching as well. The reality, is that the current regime has finished destroying the very character (& true beauty) of the city. Financial pressures have made the city very top-heavy. Where before you had various cultures assimilating, & forming this wonderful "Melting Pot." Now, the financial forces have removed most people who don't make six figures from the mix. The remaining, struggling cultures are now polarized into their own communities. The ultimate barriers are financial. Most understand this, & so erect a few walls of their own to insulate themselves. I am a New Yorker, born & raised. It's a disgusting testament to the decay that was once a great country. We were once more than the sum of our parts. That is no more. IMHO, this film doesn't address this crucial facet of its story. It comes across as a half-measure, as a result. Bets of luck the the film's creator. He seems like a nice guy.

"Home" is a stunning visual poem about New York and the concept of home. I'm an immigrant who's been living in New York for forty years and this film summed up my feelings about immigration and about the city in a way that I could never articulate. The interviews with famous New Yorkers such as Liam Neeson, Susan Sarandon and even Mike Myers, are special candid moments in which they describe how the city has transformed their lives, just like the Irish immigrant, Alan Cooke, who we follow in the film. His journey is one of change and he struggles with this, just as the native New Yorkers struggle with the constant changing of their city! The McCourts are great too, sharing their great Irish wisdom. Rosie Perez and Fran Lebowitz (the writer, not the photographer) provide many out loud laughs. The cinematography is beautiful as is the powerful Irish music and poetic narration. Why wasn't this in theatres??? I highly recommend!

Most of us have someplace we think of as Home, while others have places they call, Home---regardless---and this cinematic collaboration captures that essence in such a way that, even a non New Yorker feels or senses the metaphysical bonds intersecting ages, neighborhoods, and histories, loves and hates that encompass why millions upon millions realistically find New York as mystical as the mythical Camelot.

"Dawn Scibilia", "Alan Cooke", and their Production Crew present legendary New York, its grandeur and legendary mythology in the eyes and thoughts of some of the people that have become knowingly transfixed as native New Yorkers, no matter if they immigrated from another State, or another Country. "HOME" is a nice little documentary, with a slight glimpse into the personal experience and persepective of a few Celebrity, providing an understanding to why this great City has garnered the favor of so many... ---GBJ

This is a schlocky manifestation of a documentary about a personal journey to NYC. Somehow the guy got interviews with loads of famous people, and that is the only reason any of us are looking at this. I just want to point out that of course famous people love NYC, they probably have great memories of success there as entertainers. I actually love New York, I really do. However, the New Yorker in me won't let this mediocre excuse for a documentary fly.

I got through about five minutes of this and quickly realize it was a drippy, sappy, liberal diatribe. If that's what you want, fine, but if you don't want video NPR then don't waste your time.

I liked Alan Cooke's film but I did not feel he was yet home in New York.

I read he won an Emmy in 2009 for this documentary.

I am from New Jersey/New York and missed it tremendously watching this film.

Maybe someday I'll go back because, you see, it is My Home!!!!

I enjoyed this film but did not identify with it. You see, I am a fist generation born in New York and this is in fact my home. Yet, many times I feel displaced from my own home and treated as if I were also an immigrant form another country. The odd thing is that it is from those who are not from New York.
See New York for the eyes of generations of immigrants born in New York who have become multi-cultural with many cultures diversity in NYC, yet with a strong sense of being a true New Yorker who knows no other home; yet at times feel displaced, a foreigner in his own home.
I love New York and resent how native New Yorkers many times have to leave their home to venture else were in order to just be able to live. I dread thinking that some day it will be my turn to flee from home, die, and be berried else were instead of my home; NEW YORK.
Good movie, yet the children of immigrants born in New York were forgotten.
