You Can Now Watch the Acclaimed Film ‘Bill Cunningham New York’ for Free

Update: For some reason the video is now showing as “expired”. Not sure why.

Bill Cunningham New York, a movie that we mentioned back in March, can now be viewed for free. It’s a documentary film about the life of New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, who’s known for his candid and street photography.

For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller-who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.

The movie has received extremely good reviews.

If you have one and a half hours to spare, you can watch it here (or here):

Update: Looks like the video is only available for people in the US. Sorry international readers…

    Live in Canada – quite a disappointment that we can’t view it here either. Hulu is starting to recognize hotspot’s US IP adresses and denying access to their videos.
