REVIEWS AND ARTICLES

“[A] captivating and moving portrait of a singular man and a passing era… Mr. Cunningham finds something creative, life-affirming and free, and preserves it forever. An intimate portrait that feels more found or captured than it does constructed. (Cunningham) is an aesthete and an ascetic, a member of the establishment and a bohemian, and among the last of his kind.”
– Carina Chocano, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“It’s a real privilege to watch this film!”
– Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES

“The touching, heart-swelling film—which covers the simple life of the city’s most beloved shutterbug—reminds us that fashion doesn’t have to be so serious. It can be fun. It can be frivolous. And, as Mr. Cunningham shows us night after night, it can be a wild adventure.”
– Meredith Melling Burke, VOGUE.COM

“Fascinating! A smart, playful movie! As much a portrait of a kind of artist as it is a document of a city’s evolving sense of style.”
– Wesley Morris, BOSTON GLOBE

“A magisterial documentary about urban life and creativity.”
– Hilton Als, THE NEW YORKER

“CRITICS’ PICK! Press’s celebratory, humorous, and often touching directorial debut captures one of New York’s most appealing characters. As fittingly modest as its charming subject.”
– Miranda Siegel, NEW YORK MAGAZINE
