McQueen (15)


Documentary about the late fashion designer and couturier Alexander McQueen.

The critical consensus

McQueen is informative, engrossing but never maudlin as it considers the many facets of a fascinating and tragic figure.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 04/06/2018

Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui’s documentary conveys the outrageous glory of the designer’s work and poignantly unpicks his inner issues.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/06/2018

The filmmakers celebrate his prodigious achievements but the sadness is that he never managed to escape the hothouse world of the fashion industry.

Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 06/06/2018

McQueen charts the irresistible rise of the mercurial designer and traces the mental anguish he suffered back to his troubled childhood.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 07/06/2018

Capturing Alexander McQueen’s irreverence, eclectic inspirations and emotional power, this is a beautifully fitting tribute.

****(*)Simran Hans, The Observer, 09/06/2018

A solid if, given its subject, oddly workmanlike doc, this makes a very good case both that the fashion world had a genius on its hands, and that they didn’t have a clue what to do with him.
