MCQUEEN

Cert 15 Stars 4

I’ve only a vague recollection of controversial British fashion designer Alexander McQueen as someone who was on the periphery of the 1990’s Britpop scene.

However by using never-seen before home movies, interviews with family, friends and collaborators, and footage from his catwalk shows, this striking and intimate documentary shows he was a key force of Cool Britannia era and put me straight on the extraordinary talent the working class London lad possessed.

It also conveys the pressures he suffered to maintain his standing in the industry, which contributed to his shocking early death in 2010.
