McQueen is a personal look at the extraordinary life, career and artistry of designer Alexander McQueen. Through exclusive interviews with his closest friends and family, recovered archives, exquisite visuals and music, McQueen is an authentic celebration and thrilling portrait of an inspired yet tortured fashion visionary.

Filmmakers Ian Bonhote and Peter Ettedgui capture the life and work of a unique creative talent in all his glorious anarchy in this film. They offer a thrilling portrait of McQueen’s life and complex persona, following him as he conquers the world of fashion with designs as ravishing as they are sinister. From his apprenticeship at an old-school Saville Row tailor and haberdasher, where he displayed a preternatural knack for pattern cutting and tailoring, to his death at only 40, the film breaks the rules of documentary storytelling with it’s mosaic of standalone fragments shot in different styles, which accumulate and combine to create a ground-breaking, multifaceted portrait.
