100% – Rotten Tomatoes
8.4/10 – IMDB
“”McQueen” works both as a spectacular visual album of his work and an achingly moving account of the incomplete life behind it.”
“What McQueen reminds those obsessives and laypeople alike is that fashion is an incredibly emotional art form, and McQueen’s work was some of the most moving there was or ever will be.”
