You won’t need any special interest in fashion to be blown away by this handsomely photographed rise-and-fall story. Presently rating a rare 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, the critics are unanimous in their praise for McQueen – a new documentary that offers an intimate, well-sourced, and overall moving look at a young life and brilliant career that were both tragically cut short.
The youngest of six children, Lee Alexander McQueen was expected to become a plumber, a bricklayer or possibly a cab driver like his father. Instead, McQueen’s fierce romanticism and punk poetry helped create 1990s-era ‘Cool Britannia’. For perhaps the first time since the Swinging Sixties, a lad from the East End of London could — and did — become one of the most original and influential artists of the 20th Century.
Through exclusive interviews with McQueen’s closest friends and family and never-before-seen archives, McQueen reveals an unmatched talent who expressed his darkest fantasies and greatest ambitions through his revolutionary designs and runway shows. CTC in cinemas from Sept 6
“ Essential viewing… a sensory experience” – The Times
“An exhilarating intimate portrait” – The Standard
“Must-see… accurate, sensitive and moving… a compelling, powerful insight into the designer’s life… for anyone with an interest in fashion or just talent of the highest form, McQueen is a must.” – Harper’s Bazaar
