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.Written by
He is nicknamed, because of the sometimes provocative side of some of its collections, the "enfant terrible", and like other creators such as Stella McCartney or Raf Simons, one of the greatest hopes of fashion during his career. See more »

I'm clearly in the minority here, regarding this documentary on the British fashion designer Alexander McQueen. The film does effectively bring out the dark creative genius of McQueen, evident from when he began in the field. It became clear that he just wanted to design and evoke emotions, so when the fame and fortune inevitably arrived he became more and more miserable, all culminating in a most tragic ending.
McQueen delighted in turning his catwalk shows into often very controversial drama themed events, such as The Highland Rape Collection, whereby the models were depicted as just emerging from a sexual assault. As he often states in the movie, McQueen didn't care what others thought about him so despite being savaged by some critics, at times, he would remain true to what he felt was his artistry.
To me, the doc became too repetitious and seemed to cover the same ground over and over as it progressed. Add to it, the rather small subtitles and it all didn't add up to the greatest viewing experience for me. But I certainly got a sense of the incredible, seemingly natural, talent of this brilliant fashion designer.
