#2/365: Bill Cunningham New York (2011) Dir. Richard Press ★★★★☆
This was a really fascinating documentary about street style photographer and New York Times contributor Bill Cunningham, predecessor to the likes of Scott Schuman. More interesting than the clothes and people he photographs is the man himself. He’s so unpretentious and humble it’s almost irritating, with emphasis on the almost because he seems like such a genuinely nice person I wouldn’t hold his extremely simple lifestyle against him. I was really inspired by his work and his total dedication and love for it. I also really loved his indiscriminate way of working. You see him not only take pictures of the rich women dressed in gowns at gala events, but also of normal women on their way to work in suits and coats or even jeans. Anything that catches his eye it seems he photographs, bringing new trends to the public eye via his Times column.
I would definitely recommend this film to anyone interested in style or fashion. I absolutely adored it.
On a side note, I’m just going to say now that I am probably going to continue to post my reviews the day after I watch the film because I usually watch them in the evening and it is just easier for me to write when I’m not tired. Also, I’m going on vacation tomorrow until next monday, so I may not have time to watch a film each day, but I will make up the difference sometime in the near future.
