McQueen is in select theaters on August 10th, 2018.

McQueen was a documentary revolving the start and finish of fashion designer Alexander McQueen. It explored his struggles as a young adult perusing the fashion world on his own, to the unfortunate end of all he worked so hard for. The film was written and co-directed by Peter Ettedgui and showed actual, old, behind the scenes footage of McQueen himself. Coming from a rough and abusive upbringing, Alexander had some underlying issues in which he brought about within his pieces of art. Quite often more than not, many people found his art work or pieces of clothing rather, to be a bit blunt.

While exploring the ups and downs of McQueen’s road to fame, you also see the fame slowly begin to take him over. You see one McQueen in the beginning but another towards the end. Soon drugs and hate start to take over and many of Alexander’s closest friends no longer want to be around him. As he loses friends and family one by one, it starts to become too much for the now famous fashion designer. What happens next is just tragedy.

Although not really my type of movie, it was interesting to see the behind the scenes footage and the struggles that Alexander McQueen had to go to in order to fulfill is dreams. It was also interesting to find out why it all ended so unexpectedly. If you enjoy fashion and documentaries, than this is the movie for you!

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
