Mirroring the savage beauty, maverick originality and vivacity of his designs, 'McQueen' is an intimate revelation of Alexander Lee McQueen's own personal and professional world, both tortured and inspired. It is a film which celebrates a radical and mesmerising genius of profound influence and shows his rags-to-riches story as a modern-day fairy tale laced with the gothic.
There was nothing here that I hadn't heard or seen a million times before, except for the clothes, but some of these were so outlandish they couldn't be worn away from the catwalk. I mean, what's the point? I know, a lover of haute couture wouldn't need to ask that question!
He might have been termed as such but like a lot of fashion designers, McQueen’s clothes were far too outlandish for everyday folk to wear. There should be another named genre for this kind of Art, because that’s all it is. I found the film quite boring and for the few seconds that each of his creations were on the screen, it was far too short a time to appreciate them.
