Bill Cunningham was a wonderful guy and this comes through in the movie. But the filmmaker only needed to put the camera on him discretely and that story would have been told. The footage of Bill is great and extensive. The other NYC characters who appear to get gussied up in the hopes of being captured by the late, great fashion photographer are... yes... eccentric... but eccentric on purpose which is a little less than interesting. They love the spotlight and the filmmaker indulges them. Bill, on the other hand, is self-effacing which makes him the more compelling character. Bill was well known to be a very private person. The filmmaker awkwardly asks him personal questions that visibly upset this cheerful man. That was painful to watch and unnecessary. So, overall I would recommend the film because of Bill, but I do think the filmmaker could have handled things better.
