Even Bay Area seniors with a less than zero interest in high style, will find “Bill Cunningham”, a new documentary on the New York Times’ 85-year old fashion photographer pretty much a total pleasure. It’s not a chick flick. The settings are the streets and runways of New York and Paris but his monkish dedication to his craft and insistence on being his own boss lift this film and the spirits of anyone who sees it.

Other geezers refuse to loosen their grip on their careers in ways that are little more psychopathic such as Joan Rivers whose portrait in “Piece of Work” Is both funny and scary. Available on Netflicks.

Does anyone out there have further recommendations for non-condescending films about geezers?
