“[A] captivating and moving portrait of a singular man and a passing era…Mr. Cunningham finds something creative, life-affirming and free, and preserves it forever. An intimate portrait that feels more found or captured than it does constructed. (Cunningham) is an aesthete and an ascetic, a member of the establishment and a bohemian, and among the last of his kind.” -- Carina Chocano, The New York Times
