A variety of unseen footage is used to stitch together an engrossing portrait of brilliant fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen in this elegant documentary.
A flamboyant and stylish documentary about the brilliant fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen. The film explores his humble beginnings, his inspirations, the tight-knit band of collaborators he worked with, his creative process and the genius of his work. Home-movie footage, behind-the-scenes recordings and archive catwalk footage are stitched together with interviews to create a deeply personal journey. Supremely elegant and engrossing.
(2018 UK 111 mins)
Capturing Alexander McQueen’s irreverence, eclectic inspirations and emotional power, this is a beautifully fitting tribute … By combining cheaply shot home videos of the designer goofing off in the studio with archive of his shows and talking head interviews with some of his closest colleagues, the film-makers capture the impact he had on the people around him.
