Movie Info

Told in Bill Cunningham's own words from a recently unearthed six-hour 1994 interview, the iconic street photographer and fashion historian chronicles, in his customarily cheerful and plainspoken manner, moonlighting as a milliner in France during the Korean War, his unique relationship with First Lady Jackie Kennedy, his four decades at The New York Times and his democratic view of fashion and society. Narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, The Times of Bill Cunningham features incredible photographs chosen from over 3 million previously unpublicized images and documents from Cunningham.

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.

This movie never begins to dare to know him better.

February 21, 2020 | Full Review…

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.

Far-reaching but concise.

February 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A less than illuminating documentary.

February 13, 2020 | Full Review…

It feels like he might want to talk somewhat more directly about his life experience, but the old-time prison of the closet is allowed to win out in the end, and what we're left with here is choppy and insubstantial.
