Alexander McQueen was a bold, genius designer. He was also a tortured soul. This doc offers opportunities to watch him work on his incredible creations. Fortunately, there’s lots of footage that provides bits of insight, which is supplemented by interviews with family, friends and co-workers. It’s fascinating to see him rise from struggling and scrappy to the leader of more than one major fashion house. Sadly, the constant darkness that hangs over his life dominates the story , so much so that it starts to drag down the momentum in the final third (the extended segment on Isabella Blow’s death didn’t help). Even so, the filmmakers have used some interesting animations to symbolize various parts of McQueen’s career and they’ve effectively told the story of this fascinating and sad artist.


3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
