‘McQueen the designer delighted in showing us the skull beneath the skin. McQueen the documentary finds his beating pulse and broken heart.’ ★★★★ Tom Shone, The Sunday Times

‘This intelligent, honest documentary explores McQueen's complex personality without getting tacky or tabloidy, or ignoring his dark side.’ ★★★★ Cath Clarke, Time Out
