"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
"McQueen, the exhilarating, heartbreaking documentary by Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui, presents an almost excruciatingly intimate portrait of this genius."
- David Noh, Film Journal International
"Another case of a talent torched by its own incandescence — the first half of McQueen is an indubitable thrill, and the second half almost too sad for words. "
- Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
"McQueen is formally traditional, and guided by a respectful approach to a complicated man. It’s lovingly told, even as it refuses to gloss over ugliness. "
- Dave White, TheWrap
"If you have any intention of seeing 'McQueen' make sure you see it in a theater for full effect."
- Christopher Muther, Boston Globe
"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
"If nothing else, 'McQueen' is a staggeringly beautiful piece of filmmaking."
- Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com
"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 difference between McQueen and the standard tortured genius documentary lies in the kind of artist McQueen was: Behind the (sometimes incendiary, sometimes infantile) provocations in his designs was a clear humanity, his garments the unfiltered expressions of his emotions and ideas. "
- Kyle Turner, Village Voice
"McQueen is a haunting story of extravagant talent and inescapable private sorrow, made with exquisite craftsmanship worthy of its subject. While a narrative biopic has been in development for years, this excellent documentary delivers an eye-popping, emotionally wrenching experience that paints a fully dimensional portrait of a complex artist. "
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"Thanks to a beautifully lush, moody score by Michael Nyman and great sound editing, even a fan who has pored over these archives obsessively will see them in a new light. 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. "
- Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine (Vulture)
