    The single best film I have seen this year :heart:

    If you ever get the chance to see it, you must! If you're interested in fashion or not, this is such a heart-warming film, and as someone else said, if there was ever a film that you just wanted to scoop up and hug, this would be it.

    It premiered in March '10 at the New Directors/New Films festival, and has since made it's way around to couple of other film festivals (San Francisco, Dallas, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Silver Springs, Nantucket...). I think it's general release won't be until March 2011.

    It won Best Documentary by a New Director at the Abu Dhabi Black Pearl Awards. It also won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at both Melbourne and Sydney Film Festivals :smile:

    - wam.org.ae

    Unfortunately, I don't think it's eligible to be nominated for the 2011 Oscars. It hasn't screened commercially in NY or LA, within the specified time periods. Crossing my fingers for 2012 though ^_^

    Screening update:
    It'll be showing at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in California.
    Not sure of exact dates, but the festival runs Janurary 6-17, 2011, so sometime between then. Go see it :smile:

    It's out in NYC, LA, and D.C - any other tFSers seen it yet?

    The film now has 94% on Rotten Tomatoes; critics are loving it.

    what a kind, gracious hard working man!

    he has so much integrity. its kind of sad that these old-school new yorkers are disappearing....:(

    i have one question about his method that the movie didnt resolve..

    does he photograph all his column subjects in one week? or does he amass these similar photos over a slightly longer period of time?

    It seems that sometimes it all comes together in one week, like during a snowstorm. Other times he said he's working on several different ideas at once. I don't know if he even really thinks about it. It seems as though he just lets it come to him. And it does. Perfectly!

    I loved the part where the people were being fussy about him getting into one of the Paris shows and that guy came up took his hand and said, "this is the most important man on earth."

    This film is available to watch instantly on netflix and starting on September 20th (which is this Tuesday, I believe), you can rent it in DVD from netflix as well. It's at the top of my queue!

    What a charming man! That was a great little film-- he certainly has a great eye.

    ^I agree! I thought it was really touching how passionate he is but kind of sad too because he's so lonely in the end...
