Reader, we enjoyed screening this film, but we felt somehow complicit in its elbowing the earlier documentary aside, without really getting the reason why.

A style that some of us love as much as we love the city itself.

The Times of Bill Cunningham is slight, but that's an element of design, not a flaw.
April 23, 2020
An intimate and engaging portrait of the longtime New York Times fashion, society and street photographer who died in 2016 at age 87.

While the film isn't exactly a great work of art, its engaging, well-made, and thoroughly informative portrait of a great man compensates for its creative deficiencies.

This well-researched dive into mid-century social history treats viewers to a cornucopia of delicious photographs to accompany Cunningham's narration, plunging us into a world that feels both immediate and heartbreakingly gone forever.

Bozek's film is a fitting, moving, and lovely tribute to a true artist in his field.

What Bozek's film establishes quite decisively is not only that Bill Cunningham was a nice man, but that however he might describe it, his talent certainly had an artistic component.

For those of us who are more interested in character, the reveal of Cunningham as a person, much of the documentary's editing and presentation choices are more like annoyances.

This is a good documentary... I found it a particularly fascinating document of someone of this vintage.

It's fair to assume one reason is that even in so modest a super fan of the sartorial as Cunningham, his recognizing that life, like fashion, is both monumental and fleeting was enough to get a passionate witness talking, sometimes through tears.

A delightful documentary.
February 14, 2020
This effort feels somewhat superfluous. Yet Cunningham's charisma also keeps things lively and socially relevant.

To put it another way, Bill Cunningham is a sort of secular Saint...
February 14, 2020
Far-reaching but concise.
February 14, 2020
An entertaining, briskly paced and solid introduction to fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, but it doesn't quite reach the insightful heights of the superior doc Bill Cunningham New York.

A less than illuminating documentary.
