Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui direct Alexander McQueen, Isabella Blow and Janet McQueen in this documentary on the revolutionary working class fashion designer’s life.
I’m not sure we get much more than a rags to riches to extravagance understanding of the man himself. He admirably refuses to allow his patrons and wealthy hangers on to take credit for his graft and genius. And I like that aspect of him. The highlights of the doc are glimpses at his ominous, spectacular fashion shows, an era appropriate mixture of Britpop art and Event Horizon horror.
