Storyline

Alexander McQueen's rags-to-riches story is a modern-day fairy tale, laced with the gothic. Mirroring the savage beauty, boldness and vivacity of his design, this documentary is an intimate revelation of McQueen's own world, both tortured and inspired, which celebrates a radical and mesmerizing genius of profound influence.

I learnt nothing new about McQueen after watching this
19 September 2018 | by li_an_qiSee all my reviews

All of the story of McQueen is just to repeat the articles published after his death. Most footage of the show in this movie you can find on YouTube (same low quality). This documentary is lack of details about how he created some of his work - no detailed interview from his employees or fashion professionals; Sarah Burton only showed up in a photo; little mention about who were the people managing his brands, how did they establish manufacturing and retailing. What disappointed me most, is that everybody interviewed just wanted to emphasize that he was a genius and his death was very sad. That's all.
