You don’t need to know a thing about fashion to comprehend McQueen’s level of genius and artistry. The film itself is beautiful, with dark CGI interludes and a classical music score that McQueen himself would certainly have loved. Just as McQueen wanted people to walk away from his shows feeling something, viewers will walk away from McQueen feeling both adoration and grief.
If you’re looking for originality, you won’t find much of it in C’est La Vie where pretty much every character is a silly caricature. But although it relies heavily on tropes, it does so with charm and humour.
