“If you have any intention of seeing “McQueen” make sure you see it in a theater for full effect.” — Christopher Muther, The Boston Globe

“McQueen” makes the case that its subject was an artist whose clay was clothing. It also, despite giving short shrift to psychoanalysis, reminds us that everything you might want to know about the artist can be found in the art.” — Michael O’Sullivan, The Washing Post

“This doc on the late designer Alexander McQueen is a ravishing, haunting portrait of a fashion-shock genius. Haunting and a must-see.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Alexander McQueen was sui generis, one of a kind, which is why more than a million people turned out in London and New York to see a posthumous exhibition of his work, and why this striking documentary is hard to get out of your mind.” — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“The intricacy of the pieces and stagings… makes McQueen the relatively rare documentary that demands to be seen on the big screen.” — Inkoo Kang, Slate
