now playing... bill cunningham new york

July 1-7, 3:30 daily

Lovely, lovely film. Photography, the streets of New York, and a self-directed man. I think of Ralph Waldo Emerson "On Self-Reliance." I think of the title of that book, "Purity Of Heart Is To Will One Thing." Katie was right: there's even a bit of Soul Food here. Joy, vocation, humility.

“If you don’t take money, they can’t tell you what to do. That’s the key to the whole thing.”

Roger Ebert: "It doesn't matter if you care nothing at all about clothing, fashion or photography. Here is a good and joyous man who leads a life that is perfect for him, and how many people do we meet like that? This movie made me happy every moment I was watching it."
