In a substantial appreciation of not-so-simple Simon, the only livin' boy in New York City drives around his old neighborhood in Queens, makes wry and serious observations about his career, with Art Garfunkel and solo, and about the influences on his songwriting. His ruminations are better than the concert footage. While Simon is a practiced performer, he's still self-conscious after all these years.
