Bill Cunningham New York

Bill Cunningham New York
Directed by Richard Press (2010)

Portrait of the bike-riding, Carnegie-Hall-residing, NY Times street fashion photographer. A real photographer and  egalitarian. Made me want to go out and shoot hundreds of photos, and aspire to be unflappable of character and constantly amazed at life.

The Artist

The Artist
Directed by Michel Hazanavicius (2011)

Heartbreakingly beautiful, symbolic, mostly-silent black-and-white movie about the rise and fall of stardom. A really potent, modern narrative about creative life and pride, brought to life with incredible cinematography, direction and acting (as well as great typography). I saw it yesterday and can’t wait to see it again.
