If you spend any time in Twitterville, you've probably read puh-lenty on Bill Cunningham New York, the documentary about a beloved New York Times photographer who captures people going stylishly about their business for "On the Street with Bill Cunningham."

The movie opened in March and now everyone who has seen it or wants to see it feels compelled to share their very important thoughts on it.

There are anticipatory Bill tweets:

Straightforward Bill reviews:

And Oprah Bill moments:

Some people can't get enough Bill:

Some are mildly patronizing about Bill:

There are Bill quoters:

Multicultural Bill lovers:

OMG it's Bill for real! moments:

And Bills of tomorrow (or not):

That's an awful lot of Bill. I've been looking forward to this movie for years, but I'm always worried when the hype runneth over.

So I've got a date later with Bill, and you can too -- several times throughout this weekend, in fact, thanks to Magnolia at the Modern.

But just in case you miss it, I'll be sure to let you know on Monday how things worked out between us. Thankfully, this blog allows for more than 140 characters.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
