New York Press

A less good doc than last year's more honest and insightful Smash His Camera, about paparazzo Ron Galella.

A fascinating, endearing portrait of the man who for decades has documented trends born on the streets and beau-monde parties for a worthy cause.

Filmmaker Richard Press offers a humorous, touching and insightful portrait about a subject who clearly would have preferred to stay behind the camera.

Don't worry if you've never heard of Bill Cunningham. This delightful documentary is all about getting to know the man - and he's a major, fascinating character.

Using the low-key approach that shapes Cunningham's column, Press works up a portrait that's as raw, gentle, funny, and -- in the end -- irresistible as the pictures themselves.

The Skinny

Press asks Cunningham only two questions: one about love, the other God. Both cut deep. The price of this lifelong quest to document beauty is a heavy one.

Lacking the cinematic bells and whistles that so often distract from a really good story, the film is stunning entirely because it is so simple.

The equal billing in the title is no accident: Cunningham's story is the story of New York itself, about the ways it has changed through the decades and how that history was captured on all those miles of film passing through Cunningham's camera.

A collective of well-groomed talking heads chronicle Cunningham's career as a milliner-turned-fashion historian, and their insights speak volumes about the origins of this pillar of integrity's faultless work ethic.

Maybe the world doesn't need a feature-length film about Cunningham; maybe we don't even need his pictures. But we need examples like his, people who retain a joyful individuality while fitting seamlessly into our crazy world.

Bill has followed his bliss for 60 years, and it's a delight to follow him for 80 minutes - even if you have no interest in fashion. Don't miss it.

The film offers a portrait that's revealing and mysterious, as the folksy subject welcomes Press' camera into his routine while keeping a tight-lipped distance from it.
