Bill Cunningham New York 2010 ★★★

This is a watchable documentary about an aging fashion photographer from New York. He's a likeable chap with unusual philosophy. He doesn't seem to care for the same things that regular folk care for (money, love, comfort and so on), but instead devotes his life to the worship of unusual clothes.

It's hard to believe that he's not lonely, but he seems to honestly not regret his single-track life. He sums up his attitude with a beautiful quip: He who seeks beauty will find it. That sentiment resonates with me.

Enjoyable, affable, watchable, but not very revealing. Something dark is bubbling below the surface, and we catch a glimpse from time to time, but the documentary team are either too timid or too respectful to scratch the surface.

Probably more interesting for fashionistas.
