It was worth driving to another city to see this movie! Inspiring! But also very sad to know what he was going through. Not spoiling it but if you like fashion and art... you must see!
Directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui’s smartest tactic — the one that makes McQueen such a pleasure to watch, even for fashion outsiders — is giving viewers a front-row seat to the runway, then letting us judge the designer’s oeuvre for ourselves.
McQueen is a haunting story of extravagant talent and inescapable private sorrow, made with exquisite craftsmanship worthy of its subject. While a narrative biopic has been in development for years, this excellent documentary delivers an eye-popping, emotionally wrenching experience that paints a fully dimensional portrait of a complex artist.
Like McQueen’s designs, it is thrilling, troubling and tinged with tragedy.
