Amazing designer. Horrid soundtrack - couldn't watch with the sound on due to the incessant piano pounding.

Beautiful yet tragic documentary. A legend for sure.

Terrific immersion in the passion and the anxiety of a genuinely original human. The white-hot flame of that life was amazing, and it seems inevitable what the outcome would be now. I don't follow fashion at all, but you don't need to. It transcends that.

Very good documentary! Beautiful, yet tortured and tragic story of Alexander McQueen! One of my favorites next to Mister Rogers' powerful Won't You Be My Neighbor?
