Bill Cunningham New York

The best thing about seeing a movie at Film Forum is the row of old ladies behind me telling the guy next to me to be shorter, and the fact that everybody always claps when the credits roll.

Talking about the time he refused to take money for his work at Details after Si Newhouse bought the magazine, Cunningham says: “You see, if you don’t take money, they can’t tell you what to do, kid. ... Money’s the cheapest thing. Liberty, freedom is the most expensive.”
