5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Cunningham New York is a "must see" film., April 2, 2011
I saw Bill Cunningham New York this week and felt very fortunate to have seen it before it closed in L.A. Bill is no ordinary guy; he has an eye for exactly what he's looking for, not simply photographing the rich and famous of N.Y., but rather people on the streets of New York who are wearing something that catches his eye; whether it's women's shoes one week, black clothes in the summer, oddball t-shirts being worn by men and women, people dressing with an unusual sense of style, it's all part of what he uses to create his interesting weekly column in the N.Y. Times, "On the Street" which speaks to the individuality of how women dress, their mixture of colors, their borrowing elements from couturier designs to mix with their own sense of style, and how fashion trends are born. As he shows us, everything old is new again when clothes, jewelry, and accessories are used in a creative way.

Bill leads the simplest of lives; until recently, he resided at Carnegie Hall in a studio rent-control apartment with a
handful of other senior creative people who have lived there for many decades. Bill's studio is filled from top to
bottom with file cabinets chock full of all of his work spanning the last 50 years. He is an extremely modest man leading an ascetic life, rides his bike everywhere, and his main passion in life is his work. He is the last person one might expect to be focused on fashion and style, but there he is, in the midst of it all, respected & loved by so many in the fashion industry, that one can only walk away from this film feeling gratified by the experience of having seen it. I LOVED IT.
