About the Movie
"We all get dressed for Bill," says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. The "Bill" in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirees for the Times Style section in his columns "On the Street" and "Evening Hours." Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller - who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham's enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
This is amazing so so good .
There is so much detail in it.
If you liked The September Issue you will like this. It's a similar vain, full of wonderful characters and fabulous fashion. And by the end, you just wanna hug Bill Cunningham. What an amazing, inspirational, wonderful man. And what a great, fly on the wall documentary.

What a MASTER of his craft - this man is a brilliant photographic historian in a real sense - on the streets. Cant get enough of his videos on the New York Times website. Anyone with an interest in fashion and people and fashion will just love Bill's view and commentary. LOVE HIM TO BITS :>)
