Alexander McQueen: Life Through Dark Arts

© Ann Ray Few fashion designers have been as original and compelling as Alexander McQueen. Where a 2011 documentary by Louise Osmond focused primarily on the designer’s complex relationship with mentor and patron Isabella Blow, this new film, co-directed by Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui (son of Joseph Ettedgui) and scored by Michael Nyman, tells the story of the designer’s life through his successive shows, illuminating their intensely personal and even confessional aspects and, in turn, going some way to explain both McQueen’s hallucinatory creativity and his untimely end.
