Bill Cunningham New York

Bill Cunningham New York
a film by Richard Press (DVD)

Bill Cunningham is obsessed with fashion. He spends his time riding his bicycle around New York photographing people on the street for his New York Times column - "On the Street". He is witty and his observations are always on the mark about upcoming fashion trends.

This documentary takes you behind the scenes into his personal life. His life is very singular & focused on chronicling the changes in fashion since the 1960's. From his Carnegie Hall apartment, to his hob-nobbing with high society, this documentary is a slice of New York City life. I recommend it highly.
