Bill Cunningham New York2010

  • 4.5
"We all get dressed for Bill," says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. The "Bill” in question is 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 parties for the Times Style section in his columns "On the Street" and "Evening Hours." Documenting uptown fixtures (Anna 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 very much an art/high fashion geek fest. But you will fall in love with Bill.

Beautifully done documentary of Bill Cunningham's iconic vision of New York street fashion .
