Storyline

If you don't see the genius and talent behind Mcqueen you don't understand art. There was no one like Mcqueen before he blew up the fashion world, there was no one like Chanel, no one like Dior, no one like Saint Laurant. He was an once in a generation talent. He was more than a designer, he was a performance artist, painter, provacateur, he was one of a kind. His style was a mixture of the common and the theatrical, the past and the future, the macabre and the romantic, the light and the dark. His style was so original. I think Alexander would have liked to let his designs do the talking. This documentary didn't really work for me because I thought it lacked focus, there was more content on his personal life than his artistry, it felt like a basic biography on the history channel. What made him so special, what was his artistic process, how did he plan his shows, these topics were not explored. I think Mcqueen was a great artist, one for the ages, he will go down in history as one of the greatest fashion designers of all time, I hope this film can bring more appreciation to his work.
